Recipe by Busy Lindsay
I love Southwestern Eggrolls but didn't like the grease and salt that went along with them. Now I make them at home and they are super easy to make and better for you. I serve them for dinner, instead of as an appetizer. Durring the week I use chicken I've already cooked and dried onion flakes so it doesn't take a lot of time but you could cook the chicken and some fresh onion before adding the rest of the filling ingreidents if you prefer. Also, the filling can be frozen and used later if you wanted to make less of the rolls. I did use low sodium or no salt added corn and beans, but the site didn't recognize those varieties.
