Mini Shredded Beef Chimichangas

I am such a sucker for a good appetizer at a party. When it comes to game day, I’m all about savory, handheld foods I can munch on throughout the event. It was easy for me to run to Walmart and grab the ingredients for what is now one of my new favorite appetizers that can also be served as a meal. When we made Mini Shredded Beef Chimichangas I was kind of in heaven! They have all the flavors and textures of a classic chimichanga you would get at your favorite restaurant, but they’re nice and small for dipping. The perfect appetizer for game day!

Pace® never disappoints when it comes to snacking and meals! Whether we’re eating chips and salsa or diving into a plate of Mini Shredded Beef Chimichangas, we’re always grabbing for a jar of Pace®. It’s southwestern born and bred and guaranteed to add a kick to your snacking and cooking. I used 24 oz. Pace® Salsa Verde directly in the chimichangas and then I went even further and dipped some in the Pace® Salsa Verde and some in the 24oz. Pace® Chunky Salsa Medium. It took these chimichangas to a whole new level!

Pace® is versatile and can be used as an ingredient, condiment, and a dipping sauce. Pace® helps “Ban the Bland” when it comes to adding flavor to your snacks and meals!

I absolutely love the flavor that Pace® Salsa Verde added to these chimichangas. My family couldn’t get enough! The morning after we made these my husband was putting together his lunch for the day and grabbed some of the leftover chimichangas. After packing them up he went back to the fridge and said, “Now where’s the Pace®…” He was a man on a mission! It made me laugh and I already can’t wait to make this meal for him again.
