Chicken Chimichangas for Camping

recipe from pinterest

4, 7 in flour tortillas
1 cup chicken, (or more) cut into pieces
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup green pepper, chopped
1/4 cup Picante or enchilada sauce, green or red
1/4 tsp ground cumin
salt & pepper to taste
garlic salt to taste
1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, cubed

Cook chicken, onion, green pepper in pan with a bit of oil until onions turn clear
add cumin, salt & pepper, and garlic, cook for a few more minutes
add enchilada sauce
remove from heat, add cheese
spoon mixture into center of shell, fold over edges and form into squares
place chimichangas in pie iron and heat over the camp fire!
can serve over hot refried beans, top with lettuce, tomato, sour cream, salsa, whatever you like.

I make this ahead of time, and wrap them in tinfoil and throw them in the freezer. 
Take out a day ahead of time to thaw.

Idea from Lindsay.... we added Spanish rice to the next batch we made, and it worked great! I made the rice, and then added it to the completed chicken/cheese mixture. It also froze really well!
