Southwestern Egg Rolls

Linda Pulley


This recipe is a very tasty and different spin to egg rolls. My family is Filipino so egg rolls have been in the family for years. My mother makes hers a bit different but she always told me you can literally put whatever you want in your egg rolls. So after playing around I came up with this recipe which turned out to be delicious. I am always asked to make this. You will love it too!

These egg rolls have just enough bite to make them tasty, but not so much that they are to hot. These would be a huge hit your next game-day party. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Southwestern Egg Rolls


  • 1Cook ground beef in a skillet. Drain fat and put ground beef in a large bowl. Combine all the ingredients (except the egg roll wrappers and the eggs) in the large bowl with the ground beef and mix well.
  • 2Place 1/4 cup of the mixture (or 1 heaping tablespoon), in the center of an egg roll wrapper. Fold bottom corner over the filling, fold both sides in towards the center over the filling and roll upwards tightly to seal. Using your finger, dip in the beaten eggs and dab corner to seal. Repeat until you use all of your wrappers or you run out of mixture. (Egg rolls wrappers have directions on the package on how to roll.)
  • 3Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place egg rolls seam side down on baking sheet. Brush top of egg rolls with oil. Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for 5 - 7 minutes until lightly browned. Pull baking sheet out and turn egg rolls over and bake for an additional 5 minutes.
  • 4Serve with sour cream, salsa, guacamole or sauce of your choice.
