Gathered together from leftovers but oh so delicious!

"I too substituted the rice pilaf for a homemade Mexican style rice (my sister in laws recipe) and I substituted the cheese with a Mexican white cheese. Instead of the mexi-ranch sauce, I had homemade guacamole and sour cream on the side (my family's favorite) but, I definitely want to try the mexi-ranch sauce next time. Lets just say, my kids want brisket again JUST so we can have this the following day.

I have to note that since my BBQ skills are seriously lacking, I used an HEB fully cooked brisket which was better than ANY homemade brisket I've tasted. It literally falls apart. "

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
1 ea Tortillas; (flour)
2 slices Smoked beef brisket; chopped
1/4 cup Rice pilaf; see partial recipe
1/8 cup Monterey jack cheese; shredded
2 tablespoon Mexi-ranch sauce

Original recipe makes 1

Servings  

Preparation

Mexi-ranch sauce: mix 3 parts of ranch dressing with 1 part taco sauce. Set aside, even better if made ahead. (btw, this sauce is the sauce from the clone of Applebee's Fiesta Chicken recipe)

Rice Pilaf: Used our normal recipe, which includes diced red pepper, fresh parsley, carrot, and onion. If making it just for this recipe, I would use cilantro instead of parsley. Better yet, I'd use a Mexican rice recipe.

The brisket was leftover smoked brisket using the Red's BBQ Brisket recipe on BigOven (#162281) that I posted from the BBQ Faq. If I didn't have leftover brisket around (which is incredible), I might substitute slices of grilled flank steak.

Spread chopped meat, rice, & cheese on one half of the tortilla. Top it with 1 tablespoon (or more if you like) of the mexi-ranch sauce. Fold up the horizontal (what will be the short ends) of the tortilla. Roll up into a burrito shape. You can seal the tortilla with a touch of the sauce. I like to press mine a little bit flat (as opposed to round).

In a medium saute pan, heat 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Place chimichanga, seam side down and simmer until that side is golden brown. Flip and simmer the other sides until all golden brown. Remove and let cool. Cut in half at a 45 degree angle. Garnish plate with more of the Mexi-ranch sauce and diced cilantro.

Notes

One of the most incredible leftover dishes I've made, but what do you expect when the main ingredient took 12 hours to make in the first place?

I tried this and It was wonderful!!! I used spanish rice instead of rice pilaf and used left over taco bell sauce packets to make my mexi-ranch sauce. I also made it with sun-dried tomato flour tortillas. I will definately be making this again.
