Default Remove interior door frame?

I removed a kitchen door, now I want to take off the interior door
frame. Where it was, I'd like to make it smooth and flat so you can't
tell a door was there. When I took off one of the clamshell sides, I
see that there are many different options, all with their challenges.
What would you recommend?

Hang sheetrock and use outside metal corner bead on all edges, float
with joint compound and paint

Carefully peel off molding from one side. You should then see nails going
thru shims which hold frame in place. Cut with sawzall and remove frame.
Replace with flat trim.

I just did the same thing on my kitchen. As the other person said, cut it
out, and nail on some corner bead, and then use joint compound. You'll need
to wrap it with baseboards and tie them in to the existing bbs.

My Ex took out a door & frame when I went shopping for a used pickup and
came home with a fire red Mitsu 3000GT.
