    “Tortillas filled with a chicken, rice, beans and olive mixture – rolled, fried and topped with a piquant avocado mix, sour cream and cheese, all served on a bed of lettuce. Being raised 12 miles from the border of Mexico, I was brought up on Mexican food and learned how to make many of the dishes.”

    1. .In a medium saucepan combine the broth, rice, sauce, and 1 diced onion. Mix and bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and let simmer for about 20 minutes, or until rice is tender.Meanwhile, heat tortillas in a large skillet (so that they are soft enough to fold).

Roll tortillas, tucking in sides to prevent filling from spilling over.Heat oil in a large skillet and fry the filled tortillas, turning, until browned on all sides.

Place shredded lettuce on a platter, topped with chimichangas, avocado mix, sour cream and shredded Cheddar cheese.
