Description[edit | edit source]

Somewhat famously, the origins of the chimichanga are subject to much debate.

One source indicates that the chimichanga was invented in America in 1922 when a Mexican immigrant woman accidentally dropped her burrito in a deep fryer that happened to be laying around and started to utter a Spanish curse that began with "chi" but then stopped when she realized the importance of the moment and instead exclaimed "chimichanga," which is the Spanish equivalent for "thingamajig." Experts point out that this origin is too good to be true - how could she have instinctively known the burrito was edible and should be named when it was still in the fryer, and why didn't she market her supposed invention?

Another source claims the chimichanga was invented in Mexico in 1946 when a restaurant owner put burritos in a deep fryer as an experiment and began selling them on his menu. However, experts point out that this origin is too vague - why didn't he accidentally drop them in and instinctively know that the burrito was edible and delicious, and why did he just happen to be a restaurant owner and cook - isn't that too convenient?

Although debate about the exact origins of the chimichanga are ongoing, most agree on one thing: never trust a gas station chimichanga.
