I honestly made an account just to comment on this thread. In all honesty Chimichanga is not authentic Mexican food, it is seen as more of a tex-mex food. Meaning they took a spin on the burrito in the southwestern states and just deep fried it. Mexican food is different depending on what region in Mexico a person is from. One person can give you red enchiladas or another person can serve you green. Generally red enchiladas are considered sweet while the green are spicy. All in all I prefer enchiladas.
