This was a challenge from a customer to one of our team recently. The problem is that this terrific foodstuff has more ‘histories’ than those snake-oil salesmen who used to travel round the old west with their miracle cures.
Some say it comes from Mexico and made its way north with immigrants over the years. Others say it was accidentally ‘invented’ in Arizona when a burrito was dropped into a deep-fat fryer. Yet others claim it was the result of a proper experiment.
What do we say? Well, who cares who created the chimichanga, as long as it tastes as good as our El Chubby’s Mexican Restaurant version does. Check it out for yourself soon!
