Brown the ground beef in a large pan over medium heat, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Continue cooking until the steak is done and the onion is transparent, then add the onion and garlic.
Season the meat with salt, pepper, paprika, chili powder, and ground cumin after it’s finished cooking. Coat the meat evenly with the seasonings by stirring carefully.
Add two to three more minutes of cooking time so the flavors can combine. Take the filling out of the hot pan and let it cool down a little.
Spread out a wheat tortilla and fill it with beef filling, using as much as you want. Shred some cheese and sprinkle it on top. To make a stable chimichanga, fold in the tortilla’s sides and roll it up from the bottom.
Deep fry or deep skillet: heat vegetable oil to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius). Carefully drop the completed chimichangas into the oil, seam side down.
Fry them for a couple of minutes on each side, or until they reach the desired color and crispiness. Take them out of the oil with a slotted spoon and let them dry on paper towels.
Hot Beef and Cheese Chimichangas should be served immediately. Sprinkle with extra cheese and your choice of condiments, such as sour cream, guacamole, salsa, shredded lettuce, sliced tomatoes, etc.
