Don Miguel's Chicken Chimichanga Review

From Regular Contributor Etathed: I have never gotten into the frozen Chimichanga scene, but after hearing some positive remarks about their great snack-ability i decided to try one out. I picked up one of Don Miguel's Chicken Chimichangas down at the local market. As you can see on the label these chimis are hand made and contain skinless chicken leg meat, beans, tomatoes and onions. I opted for the conventional oven cooking method... 25 minutes at 300˚. I was sure to add shredded cheddar on top during the last few minutes of cooking, as i heard a melted cheese topping makes all chimis better. I also had ranch for dipping. This chimi was pretty good and it had a pretty authentic mexican flavor and the chicken was surprisingly good, though it was a bit pricey, i believe it was $2.50. I am likely to purchase these again.

You could also call it 'egg meat'
If you are in the futures market.

I enjoyed the review and truly enjoyed this chimi today after reading Etathed's review.


They are at my local maxi-mart here and I went out and took 3 of them down me. I also did some cheese but I added salsa nad cilantro fir maxi-flavors.

Some have suggested sour cream. I am not gonna start that roundtable.
