Definitely going to try these baked. For those that wonder about baking, Hungry Girl uses egg roll wrappers for all sorts of rolls. For instance her Apple Cherry pie pockets. Those bake for 15-18 minutes. Don't see why it shouldn't work for this recipe

Have been making this type of eggrolls for years - using taco seasoning instead of chili.

I know this would be wonderful as written but to 2Retreivers that wonders about baking them so as not to have the deepfat method. I plan to make this recipe as a quesadilla using tortilla shells in my quesadilla grill. I think it will be great.

Picante sauce is next to the salsa and is chunkier. It comes in mild, medium & hot. Recipe was great, wouldn't change a thing, ;)
