Equipment

  • large pot for frying in oil

Ingredients

rolls

  • lb chicken breast shredded
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup spinach
  • ½ cup canned corn drained
  • ½ cup black beans drained
  • cup diced red peppers
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • 12 tortillas or egg roll wrappers

avocado ranch sauce

Instructions

rolls

  • In a large stockpot, preheat 3" of oil to 375°.   In a large mixing bowl combine shredded chicken, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, chili powder and salt.  Once the chicken and spices are well mixed, add pepper jack cheese, spinach, corn, beans, red peppers and lime juice and mix to combine.
  • Place tortillas on a microwave safe plate and microwave for 30 seconds to make them more pliable.
  • Place ¼ cup of filling onto the center of the tortilla.  Fold outward sides towards the middle, then roll up. 
  • Brush the top edge with water to seal.  After all tortillas are rolled, let them sit for 1 minute before frying to allow the water to stick the edges together. 
  • Place 4 rolls into the preheated oil and fry for 1 minute, then flip and fry for 1 minute, until golden.  Once cooked, carefully remove the rolls from the oil and place on a paper towel lined plate. Repeat the frying process with the remaining rolls. 

avocado ranch

  • In a mixing bowl combine avocado, ranch, cilantro, sour cream, lime juice, salt, garlic powder, onion powder and pepper. Mix until well combined and smooth.  Serve alongside the fried egg rolls. 

Notes

Eggrolls may be stored in an airtight container or baggie in the fridge for up to 3 days.
