You Brought a New Kind of Love to Me

Baked Chimichangas
I ran out of cooking oil, the corner store has no tortillas and the bread is picked over but they did just get a huge shipment of these grain wraps.  You have to work with what the stores have right now.  For $3.99 you get 6 medium size, a rip off but blessing in disguise as we're not supposed to eat bread.  Somehow I justify it during the Pandemic.
I made these lovely oven baked Chimichangas with shredded pork, hotsauce, onions and mozzarella with Cotija cheese on top.  The wraps were crunchy and thin, great texture although if they were side by side there would be no comparison to a deep fried flour tortilla but that's the great thing, if you haven't allowed bread for months, you really appreciate anything that even looks like it.  This comes from a girl that drank near-beer for 10 years though.  Oil brushed on the top helped them to crisp up and brown in a 350 degree oven.
Roasted cauliflower is a great, super easy side.  Cauliflower and cabbage have been smart purchases if you're trying not to visit the market every day.  They keep well in the fridge and provide enough for a few meals in a variety of preps.
