Reviews for Picante Egg Rolls
"these were good, kids enjoyed them as well next time i'm gonna try them in the deep fryer!"
"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, ;)"
"I would like to know also if you can bake these for a lighter version? Can someone help?"
"Cwipf... FYI Picante sauce is like salsa. You can find it in your grocery store. Ever heard of Pace Picante Sauce? Look by the taco area where the jars of salsa & cheese are. Some will say picante sauce."
"I'd like to try this recipe but what is picante sauce and where can I find it."
"Sound great, but I would like to know if can bake them instead of frying"
"Great idea, I pass this recipe to all my new Tupperware Hostess..They love it...Thanks it a hit.."
