Southwest Egg Rolls & Cool Avocado Dip

A friend of mine made these egg rolls for my birthday treat several years ago. They are the best I have ever eaten.Becky Aylor, Sisters, Oregon
  • Total Time
    Prep: 35 min. Cook: 5 min./batch
  • Makes
    20 egg rolls (1-1/2 cups sauce)


  • 2-1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 2/3 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 2/3 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained

  • DIP:
  • 1 cup ranch salad dressing
  • 1 medium ripe avocado, peeled and mashed
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime zest

(Keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp paper towel until ready to use.) Fold bottom corner over filling. Fold sides toward center over filling. Moisten remaining corner with water; roll up tightly to seal. Repeat.

    Good recipe. I think the filling could use a bit more spice to it.
