Southwestern Rolls

Pin It
I love appetizer food!  One of my favorite things to order is southwestern rolls.  All of my favorite things found in a Mexican dish, rolled into a bite size piece of yummy!

Here are the ingredients:

Large egg roll wrappers
1 chicken breast, chopped into bite size pieces
1/2 can black beans
1 cup frozen corn
1/2 can mild chopped chilis
3 green onions, chopped
Mexican cheese, shredded
Dash of garlic salt, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper

Heat a large pot full of vegetable oil.  Get the oil to 300-325 degrees.

Heat a skillet with a little olive oil.  Add the chicken breast and spices.  Cook until the chicken is done.  Add the beans, corn, chilis and green onions.  Saute about 5 minutes.

Gather a small glass of water, the egg rolls and shredded cheese.  Take one egg roll wrapper and put 1-2 tablespoons of the southwestern mixture at the top of the wrapper.  Add some cheese.

Fold over the sides of the wrapper so that the ends will be closed.

Roll the egg roll and seal the ends with a little water and your fingertip.  When the oil has reached 300 degrees, add the rolls.  Cook until they are brown.  Remove and let them drain on a paper towel.

Cut down the middle and serve with a dipping sauce. 

Try some homemade salsa:

Or you can try an avocado ranch sauce.

1 cup of ranch
1 avocado
1 handful of cilantro (fresh)
The juice of 1/2 lime

Blend together

This recipe makes 10-12 rolls.  Enjoy!
