I know you’ve seen people walking around Disney parks with giant turkey legs. BUT, did you know that at every stand that sells turkey legs in Disneyland also sells chimichangas?
Yep, crispy fried burritos filled with beef and beans. I myself had not eaten one until recently. Mainly because they look pretty disgusting.
However, I am almost embarrassed to say that they are sinfully delicious. Served up warm, the outer “shell” is crisp while the center is soft and flavorful. In the mixture, the beans and beef are almost blended together as one, which sounds crazy, but it’s true. You can see in the photo above it’s hard to distinguish…
The filling is not too spicy; in fact most stands offer packs of salsa so that you can “heat” it up if you’d like.
At $5.49 each, it’s actually not a bad price for something that will fill you up quickly. I couldn’t even finish a whole one, so you may want to consider it a snack for sharing.
Chimichangas are located at several spots throughout Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. If you see turkey legs, you’ll know you’re in the right spot. Friendly Cast Members are standing by, ready to happily serve them up!
We’d love to hear from some of you who have tried these treats — what do you think?
Have you tried a chimichanga at the Disneyland Resort?
