While tacos and enchiladas are all well and good, why not impress your guests by breaking out the deep fryer and making chimichangas? The deep fryer adds the same texture and crunch that you’d find if you ordered the dish at your favorite Mexican restaurant and the ranchero sauce adds a nice spicy kick.
