Brunch Chimichangas


Chimichangas are deep-fried burritos. It's typically served with either salsa, guacamole, cheese, or sour cream. Here, I have opted to baked these Brunch Chimichangas instead of frying them. The soft tortillas will house the diced onion and pepper scrambled eggs, cheese, and roasted tomato salsa. Neatly wrap it all and brush with olive oil before baking in the oven until crispy on the outside. Serve with some fresh guacamole, it tastes fantastic!

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
