Chorizo-Queso Egg Rolls Recipe

Chorizo-Queso Egg Rolls Recipe

Little bites deliver big flavor in this combination of tangy sausage and creamy cheese in crisp wontons. The recipe is an appetizing take-off on my favorite Mexican entree.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 45 min. + chilling Cook: 5 min./batch YIELD:16 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
  • 6 ounces uncooked chorizo or Johnsonville® Hot Ground Sausage
  • 2 cups crumbled queso fresco
  • 1/4 cup enchilada sauce
  • 1/4 cup chopped green chilies
  • 1 package (12 ounces) wonton wrappers
  • Oil for frying

Directions

  • 1. For dipping sauce, in a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, cream cheese, cilantro and chipotle peppers. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
  • 2. Crumble chorizo into a large skillet; cook for 6-8 minutes over medium heat or until fully cooked. Drain. Stir in the queso fresco, enchilada sauce and chilies.
  • 3. Position a wonton wrapper with one point toward you. Place 2 teaspoons of filling in the center. (Keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp paper towel until ready to use.) Fold bottom corner over filling; fold sides toward center over filling. Roll toward the remaining point. Moisten top corner with water; press to seal. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
  • 4. In an electric skillet, heat 1 in. of oil to 375°. Fry egg rolls in batches for 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm with dipping sauce. Yield: 4 dozen.
