            -Sliced ripe olives
  
   In a skillet, melt bacon grease over medium heat.  Saute meat, onion,
   garlic tomatoes, chilies and potatoes until the onion softens. Add
   salt, oregano, chili powder and cilantro; simmer 2-3 minutes. Place a
   scant 1/2 cup meat filling on each tortilla. Fold, envelope-style,
   like a burrito. Fry seam side down, in 1/2 inch of hot oil (360-375
   degrees) until crispy and brown.  Turn and brown other side. Drain
   briefly on a paper towel. Place on a serving plate and top with
   shredded cheese, a dollop of sour cream, guacamole and salsa. Place
   shredded lettuce next to chimichanga and top with tomatoes and
   olives.  Serve immediately.  Yield: 12 servings. Though still
   debated.  Tuscon is generally credited as the original home of the
   chimichanga (a fried “burro”, as we call them, stuffed with meat,
   onions and chilies).  I've combined several recipes into this one,
   and it’s fairly authentic.
