What You Need

1
lb.  ground beef
1/2
cup  finely chopped onions
2
cloves  garlic, minced
1
tsp.  dried oregano leaves
1
tsp.  crushed red pepper
8
 flour tortillas (6 inch)
6
oz.  VELVEETA®, cut into 8 slices
2
cups  oil
1/4
cup  BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream
1/4
cup  finely chopped fresh cilantro

Make It

BROWN meat in large skillet on medium-high heat; drain. Add onions, garlic, oregano and pepper; cook until onions are tender, stirring occasionally.

SPOON 1/4 cup meat mixture onto center of each tortilla; top with VELVEETA. Fold in all sides of tortillas to completely enclose filling; secure with wooden toothpicks. Place in single layer on baking sheet. Refrigerate 20 min.

HEAT oil in large saucepan on medium-high heat. Add chimichangas, 2 at a time; cook 5 min. or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Remove and discard toothpicks. Serve chimichangas topped with sour cream and cilantro.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Variation
Save 140 calories and 18g of total fat per serving by substituting 1 lb. potatoes, cooked and cubed, for the browned ground beef and by using 2% Milk VELVEETA and BREAKSTONE'S Reduced Fat or KNUDSEN Light Sour Cream. To prepare, cook and stir onions with seasonings in large skillet 3 min. or until crisp-tender. Add potatoes; cook 3 to 5 min. or until heated through, stirring frequently. Spoon onto tortillas and continue as directed.
Thawing Ground Beef Safely
To thaw ground beef safely, keep the meat wrapped and thaw it in the refrigerator -- not on the countertop. Store on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator to prevent any drippings from cross-contaminating other foods. Use thawed meat within 2 days.
