I think apples and cheddar cheese make a tasty pair, and this grilled cheese sandwich recipe gave me the idea that bacon could make it even better.  This chimichanga recipe gave me the time and temperature at which to bake my creations, but the rest is my own.


Apple/Bacon/Cheddar Chimichangas (makes 4)

4 flour tortillas (I used 8-inch, but 10-inch would have been easier to keep closed)
12 slices bacon
1 medium Gala apple (you want to use a good baking apple so it doesn't turn to mush)
1 (13-oz) can cooked chicken
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese



Preheat oven to 450*F.  Fully cook your bacon and chop your apple into smallish bits.  If you keep your tortillas in the fridge, microwave each one for about 5 seconds to make them easier to roll without breaking.  Put 3 slices of bacon in the middle of each tortilla, then top them with equal portions of chicken, apple pieces, pecans, and cheese.



Fold in the ends of the tortillas and roll them up.  If they're big enough to stay closed on their own, put them on a baking sheet seam-side down; if not, place them seam-side up so they don't fall apart and hold them closed with toothpicks.  Bake until tortillas are crispy, about 8-10 minutes.

The apple makes it sound like it'd have great crunch!

Mmmm...gotta' buy some bacon and try this!
Too bad I'll have to make it without the nuts, as we have allergies.

It's still good without the pecans, the first version I tried was just apples, bacon, and cheese in a wrap and it was really tasty.  I wanted to give it a little something extra for the challenge, though.  Smiley
