More Lunch Fun

Today my office cafeteria offered up a beef and bean burrito with a side of corn and red beans and rice. The burrito is deep-fried, which I believe technically qualifies it as a chimichanga and not a burrito. I've also never thought of red beans and rice as a side for Mexican food, but what do I know, other than the fact that you'll all be happy to know that I won't be reporting on this meal's inevitable outcome.

All together now, "Thanks for sharing, Dave!"

Just as long as you don't have that lunch next Tuesday, and then go around Papa's saying, "Pull my finger,"....

Shrimp day looked much better.

What's for lunch tomorrow?

eeek, doesn't look very tasty.

From experience I have learned that outside of Mex there is not much knowledge about Mexican food so I am not sure of what you call chimichangas in the States actually are.
In any case a burrito is never fried. Ok, I have only been to 28 states in Mx but I cannot imagine that in the four states that I am missing they do fry them :P
Chimichangas are not deep fried, they are like some sort of sincronizada (two flour tortillas with cheese and beans, pan fried). I know that in the north of Mexico they have lots of Tex Mex food so maybe the confussion came from there.
Wow, thanks to your blog I just realized that the latinos in the US managed to screw up yet another of our dishes. The chimichangas you get there look like a latino version of a spring roll, is this true?
