The Merc with a Mouth loves this dish. Full of punchy Mexican flavours and a great dish to beat the weekend hangover. We may never know what goes on in Deadpool’s wacky brain but we do know that he loves saying Chimichanga! all the time.
Chimichangas were first cooked at El Charro Cafe in Tucson, in 1922. The lady who used to run the restaurant used to curse her cooks, however because her nieces used to work there she stopped cursing and started using the word Chimichanga. So maybe it is an indirect way to curse and hence Deadpool likes it.
Chimichangas are Tortillas filled with a chicken, rice, beans and olive mixture – rolled, fried or baked and topped with a piquant avocado mix, sour cream, cheese and tomatoes.
