Chimichanga - Holy Frijoles

Sandwich Contents: A flour tortilla stuffed with cheese, poblano peppers, onions, and a choice of fillings, ranging from chorizo and grilled veggies to black beans and corn. The whole deal is dipped into the deep fryer, just long enough to give the tortilla a crunchy casing. Top it off with picante, salsa verde, and/or sour cream.

Kate's Review: Time for a little Mexican taste testing. How could you go wrong with anything deep fried let alone something stuffed with meat and cheese? Unfortunately I was starting my “diet” this week so I couldn’t go all in for this sinful creation. I limited myself to a quarter of the Chimichanga but that was enough to know I should stop before overindulging. We opted for the traditional version w/ Chicken, rice and beans but I’m sure any combo would be just as good. I’m a quac junkie so of course we had to pay the $4 for a side but that is always worth it for me. I also recommend a side of the grill veggies; add it to a side salad for a healthier option if your waist can’t afford all the heavenly cheese and fried food.

Nicole's Review: This was the only “sandwich” on the list that I had tried before. I have always been a fan of Holy Frijoles and chimichangas so I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed. How can you go wrong with a chimichanga? Meat, beans, rice & cheese wrapped in a tortilla and fried! It was delicious. The guacamole was a great accompaniment and of course you can’t go without the sour cream. The only thing missing from the meal was a beer. We were on our lunch break though, so I had a coke instead. Albeit it was a great sandwich, there wasn’t anything about it that knocked my socks off the way the Bistro Beef or the Crouque Misour did.
