    I used brandy instead of rum only because i didnt have any rum in the house. Ridiculously tasty!!  -  07 Feb 2016


    OH MY GOSH! This was awesome & I didn't even make it as chimichangas. I made the banana sauce and served it warm over vanilla ice cream. As an accompaniment, I made cinnamon crisps by cutting flour tortillas into triangles, spraying them with butter and dipping them in cinnamon/sugar. Then, I baked them for about 5 minutes at 400 degrees. I made this after a Mexican Fiesta Bunco Night and the ladies all raved about it. I will make this again and again.  -  15 Sep 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    OHH! This recipe was good! I made it for dinner, and after making three batches of tortillas and doubling the banana part, we were stuffed! Plus, barely enough leftovers for one person!! I didn't have spiced rum, and just used vanilla extract.  -  22 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
