Southwestern Egg Rolls

The Menu:
Southwestern Egg Rolls
The Original Recipe:
I am sure I found this on Pinterest. It looked delicious. I was right! This was Taco Bell delicious, in my opinion. I served it with Taco Rice and green Salsa on the side. I know I haven't been posting new recipes, much. I have made a ton! I haven't had a camera. It's broke. I sent it in for repairs, so it should be back soon. I managed a couple of pictures. I have the recipes to share, though. With the move and everything it's just been crazy busy around here. We've been eating good, though. :) This is a great meatless meal night.

Baked Southwestern Egg Rolls


·         2 cups frozen corn, thawed

·         1 (15 oz.) can black beans, rinsed and drained

·         1 (10 oz.) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

·         2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend

·         1 (4 oz.) can diced green chiles, drained

·         4 green onions, chopped

·         1 tsp. ground cumin

·         ½ tsp. chili powder

·         1 tsp. salt

·         ½ tsp. pepper

·         ¼ tsp. cayenne pepper

·         1 package egg roll wrappers (about 24 total)


1.        In a large bowl, combine everything but the egg roll wrappers. Mix well to blend. Lay an egg roll wrapper out on a work surface so that one of the corners is pointing toward you and place ¼ cup of the filling in the center. Fold the tip closest to you up over the filling, roll a bit, then take the points pointing outward and fold them in toward the center. Continue rolling into an egg roll shape until a small part of the remaining point is still free. Dip a finger in water or beaten egg and lightly brush on the edges of the free corner. Finish rolling and press to seal closed. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.

2.        Preheat the oven to 425˚ F. Lightly oil a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place the sealed egg rolls on the baking sheet seam side down and spray the tops of the egg rolls with cooking spray. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until lightly brown, turning halfway through baking. Serve warm with salsa.
