Meals that start with something like a precooked rotisserie chicken? What an easy way to whip up a delicious meal while still saving the time of preparation that you might normally have. This Instant Pot Chicken Chimichanga is just the ticket as it also uses the incredible speed timing of the Instant Pot to get this dinner on the table practically before they know you started making it!
There used to be a restaurant chain called Chili’s that started a lot of the Mexican franchise around the Madison Wisconsin area 40 years ago. I delighted in their Chicken Chimichanga plate, with the slightly crunchy tortilla skin of the (let’s face it, burrito) that was layered with mouth watering brown and spicy gravy goodness. Top it with the suggested garnish and you will have a plate that looks like it could come out of their very kitchens, back in the day. Now, all you can see left of the Chili’s franchise, is their bags of chips and jars of salsa in the aisles of your local grocery store…
