1Cut red and yellow peppers in quarters, remove stems, seed and veins

Add to pepper mixture

Add horseradish and mustard to bowl and stir ingredients with wooden spoon until well mixed

3Place one spring roll wrapper on cutting board or clean flat surface with a point facing you.

Place a heaping tablespoon of mixture diagonally across the lower third of the wrapper.

Bring the tip of the lower corner over the filling and roll once.

Bring the left and right flaps together to make an envelope and wet each tip to seal.

Continue rolling to form a nice tight roll.

Pull the last tip over and seal it with water

Place egg rolls seam down on a serving plate

Continue with other wraps until all filling mixture is used.

Place oil in wok or deep heavy pan until about 1"to 1-1/2" deep; heat to medium high (until oil is shimmering)

Place 2-4 rolls (depending on size of pan) in hot oil and fry until golden brown and crisp (about 4-5 minutes). Turn constantly to avoid burning.

Remove from oil to a paper towel to drain. Cover to keep warm.

Continue this operation until all egg rolls are cooked.

Serve immediately.
