Chimichangas for dinner tonight. These and all other chimis I make were inspired by my friend C. Yum :)

1 can refried beans (I used black)
6 tortillas
vegetable oil
small can of enchilada sauce
other toppings of your choice
1 package Follow Your Heart/ Vegan Gourmet mozzarella flavor
~3 tbsp nutritional yeast
~1/2 cup unsweeted soy milk

1. Prepare chimis by spreading 1/6 of the refried beans in line-shape in the center of a tortilla. Fold in the two ends on either end of the horizontal line about 1/2 an inch on either side, using refried beans as glue. Then fold in one of the large flaps, covering the bean line. Apply a little more bean "glue" on the outside of this flap so that you can fold in the last flap and it will stay in place. Repeat with the next 5.

2. Heat a pan to medium heat and add a couple of tablespoons of oil. Place as many chimis in the pan as you can fit. Cook until browned and then flip.

3. While your chimis are cooking, cut the Follow Your Heart into small cubes and melt in a small saucepan. Add the nutritional yeast and soymilk. Stir frequently until very smooth.

4. When the chimis are done cooking, top with enchilada sauce, "cheese" mixture, salsa, and other toppings.
