These are even better than the specialty eggrolls like at Chili's restaurant... a little time consuming but way worth it. Sometimes egg roll wraps are hard to find. I found mine at Walmart but was in the produce dept of all things. You definitely have to like cilantro if you follow this recipe. I am sure it would be good even without it.

Whether you're an egg roll fan or a taco fan, you will not be disappointed with these bad boys! They do take some time to prepare, but as you take your first bite you're handsomely rewarded. They have a yummy taco flavor. The dipping sauce is cool and creamy. Do not skip the dipping sauce! It's so good you might find yourself spooning it out of the bowl.
