Smoked Chicken Chimichangas instructions
- Mix the smoked Paprika, oregano, thyme, salt, pepper, garlic & onion powder, ground mustard and cayenne pepper in a bowl.
- Lay out chicken on a rack and lightly coat with olive oil. Then season with mix from step 1 (both sides).
- Preheat smoker to 250°F or 130°C. Use Hickory wood/Pellets and smoke for 1 hour or until internal temperature of 160-165°F. Remove and rest for 10 minutes..
- In a blender, mix the water, Avocado, jalapeno, pinch of salt and pepper, juice of 1 lime, 1 tsp garlic powder and sour cream. Blend until smooth. Add splashes of water to get desired consistency..
- Rinse black beans and set aside.
- Put 1/4" of fry oil in a large pot or cast iron pan. Preheat over medium heat..
- When chicken hits internal temperature of 150°F, up grill temperature to 300°F. Chicken does not accept smoke flavoring after 150°F, so you can up the temperature to finish..
- Warm the Tortilla for easy wrapping. Put plastic wrap over plate and put in microwave for 30 seconds..
- Cut chicken into strips, then assemble Tortilla. Place black beans, Avocado crema, chicken and Shredded Monterey jack cheese..
- Fold tightly and use a toothpick to keep Tortilla from unfolding. Fry all sides in oil until golden brown (about 10 seconds per side).
