Self-control. Let’s talk about that…
Allow me to define it, please.
Self-control is when your face is staring at these Ice Cream Chimichangas and the only thing you can do is stare back. And photograph them. Can’t touch, can’t lick, can’t bite…
That, my friends, is self-control.
Have I told you lately that I love… ice cream?
There’s a bunch of ice cream recipes on here that could give that away. There is that Strawberries and Cream Ice Cream Cake from last week… Then we have Peanut Butter Cup Ice cream, and the amazing Tiramisu Ice Cream… just to name a few. It’s my favorite dessert. Especially soft serve, when it is just at the melting point. YUM! That’s why I am crazy about these chimichangas.
The first time I had an ice cream chimichanga was waaaaay back in the day at this hole in the wall restaurant that served the best Mexican food I had ever tasted. When they brought out my chimichanga, my face lit up like a Christmas tree. Then, when I cut into the chimichanga, OH.MY.GAH! I wanted to cry because I was so damn happy!
I mean, look, it’s ice cream and it’s fried! Cha-ching!! All I could think was, Helllloooooo my new love! Why haven’t we met?!? And, did they just introduce me to what is to become my new favorite dessert of all time?! Heck yes they did!!
My life changed at that very moment. Dairy Queen was no longer going to cut it. I had to make some changes.
Thus I started making my own. And you should, too.
Heat up the oil, take out the ice cream, and grab some tortillas – you need these in your life. Believe me!
