Mini Beef Chimichangas
When I first made beef chimichangas, I was really excited about it. As I heard that this chimichanga is one of the famous dishes in most of the bars in Mexico and being a party freak I have a crush on this dish. So somehow, I managed today to put on my apron and enjoy the pleasure of making.

Now layout Tortillas, add 1⁄8 cup cheese on each.
Then in a deep fryer, heat oil to 350⁰ F or 175⁰ C.
Meanwhile, in a skillet heat olive oil over medium high heat and sauté the onion until translucent.
Then add the ground beef, chili powder, cumin, tomato paste, celery salt, salt and pepper and stir it until it turns brown.
Now divide the meat mixture into the equal amount and put the mixture to the center of each tortilla.
Then fold the tortilla into a close packet shape and secure it by using a round toothpick.
Now deep fry the chimichangas in the deep fryer until they turn golden brown.
When it is done, place in on the plate and remove the toothpick before serving.

Generally, mini beef chimichangas are served with sour cream or Cherry Bomb Mocktail. So, enjoy the classic beef chimichangas.
