The Dinner that keeps on giving

So being someone who was only introduced to pinterest about a month ago I have to say I am obsessed!!!
I am always looking for new recipes and I found this recipe for Chicken Chimichangas and I was sold. Mexican is a favorite at our house and we eat it at the minimum once a week... Its quick easy and always delicious :) So here is a look into our kitchen today...

Here is the full shot of my kitchen ..aka cooking mess

First home made guacamole for toppings

Next I missed a few steps in the picture taking process but I made homemade Spanish rice and added chicken and made refried beans ( from a can). 

Next I layered my beans and the rice and chicken mixture in my tortilla and topped it with cheese and wrapped it up and closed it with a tooth pic.

Next it went into the oil for about 1 minute on each side and out came fried deliciousness :)

Finally we added the topping and dinner was served at the Tucker house :)

Let me tell you it was a lot of work ( definitely will be a weekend meal from now on) but it was delicious and it made so much food. We will have food for days... which is how we like it :) Try it out and let me know what you think.

However all this fried deliciousness only brings one greater thing to mind... THE STATE FAIR! Only two days till it opens Thursday and I couldn't be happier..bring it on :)
