Egg Rolls turned into Mexican food? Yes, please! These are so good and easy to make. I made a ton of them and froze some so I can just throw them right into the oven on a busy night. These can be fried, if you prefer, but just as good baked.
I started with egg roll wrappers that can be found at most grocery stores, then filled them with seasoned ground turkey, jalapeños, black beans, bell pepper, fresh corn and cilantro. Rolled them up and sealed them by moistening the last flap with a tiny bit of water. Brushed them with a little olive oil and sprinkled with a tiny bit of sea salt and baked them for about 15 minutes.
I left out the jalapeños in half of them and the kiddos devoured them, even the little man. He’s only 9 months and ate two…couldn’t believe it!
- 1 lb seasoned and cooked ground turkey (I seasoned mine with cumin, chili powder, garlic, onion, salt, and pepper)
- 1 ear of fresh corn – cut off cob (you could used canned, also)
- 1 can black beans – drained and rinsed well
- 1 bell pepper (red, green, or yellow – poblano would be really good, too)
- 1 jalapeño – diced
- 1 pkg egg roll wrappers
- 3 Tbsp of olive oil for brushing
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Cook the ground turkey (or your meat of choice). Season as you would your taco meat. Then fill the egg rolls wrappers with all your ingredients. Don't stuff them too much, because you will need to be able to close them! Wrap them up and seal by wetting the last corner of wrapper.
- Place on a greased (or parchment lined) cookie sheet with the last corner of wrap facing down. Lightly brush olive oil on top of the rolls (I also sprinkled a little sea salt on top, but this is optional). Place in the preheated oven and cook until they are nice and brown on top...about 10-12 min. Then, flip each one over and cook about 5 more minutes so the bottoms won't be soggy.
- These taste great on their own, or garnished with some sour cream and salsa. We like spicy food, so we dipped our in our homemade avocado diablo sauce...recipe below.
- 1 avocado
- 5 jalapeños
- 1 serrano pepper (or more, depends on how spicy you want it)
- 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
- 1 fresh tomato
- 2 tsp minced garlic (or 2 cloves)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- juice from 1 lime
- Place all ingredients in food processor or Vitamix and blend until creamy. You may need to taste and adjust the amount of peppers you add because it’s so hard to tell how hot they will be!
