Southwestern Egg Rolls

There are people who start off the month of January with healthy meal recipes and then there are others gearing up for the big football game. As you can see I’m definitely heading in the direction of fun food and drinks for all fans. These Southwestern Egg Rolls won’t disappoint any of your guests and it will leave them asking you for the recipe.

We typically don’t make a lot of fried foods but when I do it’s because it elevates the recipe to where it needs to be. Yes, you can bake these egg rolls but my personal preference is to fry these babies up.

This past year I traveled to Sabra headquarters and made my own Mexican spiced hummus. I wanted these Southwestern Egg Rolls to mirror that recipe because I loved it so much. I started by adding some Classic Sabra Hummus to the middle of the egg roll to serve as the beans. Then mixed together some chicken, bell pepper, jalapeno, corn, spices and cilantro to go on top of the hummus. I couldn’t forget some shredded Mexican cheese before rolling it all up. It took less than 1 minute in the dutch oven and it was ready for serving time.

You can make these ahead of time and fry before the party or store fried ones in refrigerator and then broil in oven right before serving time.
