Chicken Chimichangas

Aunt Cherrill sent me this recipe and she got it from Nancy.  I have no idea where Nancy got it but I made it and it turned out very good, Clark really liked it.  Don't suppose it is very healthy since it is deep fried, but does taste good and it isn't hard to do.  I made hush puppies to go with it so we really weren't that healthy.  Needless to say, I halved the recipe but this is the full recipe.  Enjoy.

Nancy's Chicken Chimichangas

1 whole chicken or 3-4 lbs boneless chicken breasts cooked and shredded
1 lb Colby cheese, grated (didn't have Colby so used cheddar)
1 can diced green chilies
chopped onion to taste
2 - 10 oz cans enchilada sauce or 1 large can
2 cans cream of chicken soup ( or if cooking a whole chicken, make a gravy out of the broth instead of using the soup)
10 - 12 tortillas, burrito style
oil for frying

Mix soup and sauce in a pan and set aside.   Mix chicken, chiles, and onions and add just enough sauce to make it stick together, (about 1 1/2 cups).
Divide mixture among tortillas and make an envelope fold and secure with toothpicks.   Deep Fry at 300 degrees turning them as they brown.   Drain on a paper towel. 
Serve topped with a spoonful of remaining sauce mix on top and garnish with lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, sour cream, olives and guacamole or whatever is your pleasure.   We don't do olives so eliminated them.
