Chorizo-Queso Egg Rolls

Little bites deliver big flavor in this combination of tangy sausage and creamy cheese in crisp wontons. The recipe is an appetizing takeoff on my favorite Mexican entree. —Kari Wheaton, South Beloit, Illinois

    Prep: 45 min. + chilling Cook: 5 min./batch
  • Makes
    4 dozen


  • 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 bulk spicy pork 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


  • For dipping sauce, in a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, cream cheese, cilantro and chipotle peppers. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
  • 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.

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.

    I tried these for a get together that I had with some friends. They loved helping roll the wontons and they were so good! The dip was even really good!
