"I have been making these for a while and they are frequently requestedby friends and family!! The only change I make is to bake instead of fry. I typically spray the tops of the egg rolls with cooking spray and then bake at 375 for 15 to 20 minutes until they are brown."

"Never made egg rolls before but found this recipe so easy. Loved the cilantro in this recipe. The avocado dip was delicious that I had to make double to keep on hand.

My husband was a skeptic at first since the recipe had corn and beans inside. First bite he was begging for another egg roll. I will continue to make this recipe for years.
