When I kind of trash talked chimichangas last week I did so because I wanted to stick up for underdogs like this one. You know, they don't look the best at first, but really are far more complex and tasty. I realize it was not quite fair, and that there is a cheesy, greasy part of my heart that Tex-Mex delight. But there's also a time for complex and layered dishes like this one from The Spicy Food Lover's Bible. The Yucatecan dish isn't exactly simple, but it can be made in less than an hour, and it has everything I love in Mexican cuisine.
