Chimichangas Using Leftovers

Chimi recipe - Leftovers

This a super yummy way to use leftover taco meat both hamburger and chicken taste great (the bean mixture from Meatless Tacos is perfect for this!). I love recipes that use leftovers, not only does it cut my prep time in half, but we also save money by reusing the previous meal’s meat. Preparing a frugal meal that taste delicious is like winning a gold medal for our budget.

Unroll Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. Separate into 4 rectangles and press the seams together. Place Rectangles on greased baking sheet.

Spoon meat onto one side of the rectangle and top with cheese (I use about a teaspoon of cheese)

Take the empty side and fold Pillsbury dough over. Press ends together.
