Reviews for Southwest Egg Rolls
"Delicious! I halved the cream cheese. I only got 21 out of the recipe, though. I think I will deep fry instead of bake because they were not crispy enough, and I will make a double batch for a party appetizer plate."
"Really delicious. A nice Lenten alternative to fish, too"
"Good, very cheesy. Pretty easy to make. I used jalapeno salsa instead of slicing up jalapenos. They turned out a little bit sweeter than I would have liked."
"Wonderful. Left out the corn due to family preferences but added more pepper and beans to make up for the volume. Next time I may consider decreasing the amount of cream chees a bit."
"These were great, and Weight Watchers friendly! Will make again for sure!"
"I love these! I have made them many times for family and friends."
"I made these last night for my family...they couldn't eat them fast enough!!! Fabulous!"
