My family loves these. We do add chicken, and then freeze the leftovers which make excellent meals for college kids! Both of my girls have loved having these in their dorm freezer.

These egg rolls were out of this world. I love the fact they are baked, because I can't eat fried egg rolls. The corn & black beans were wonderful combined with all the spiced. You won't be disappointed when making these.

Have made these twice now. Last time we doubled the recipe and froze them. I love that they are baked (not fried) but still crispy and full of veggies. They're a hit every time!

Very tasty. My package of egg rolls came with 15 and I used about 1/3 cup filling for each. I think next time I will brush with olive oil or butter to get a more crunchy egg roll wrap. They were a little dry.
