My mom made this while I was growing up. She'd make a big batch of it for parties, etc.

We like to try different spring roll recipes. Each one is a little unique. Darla's mom's version of spring rolls is delicious. Frying the tasty filling in really thin lumpia wrappers gives these rolls a nice crunch with every bite. Dip in your favorite sauce (we opted for sweet chili) and you have a perfect appetizer or snack. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
