    newspapergal's Note:

    I started out making a southwest eggroll recipe that's on Zaar, but I left out a lot and added a lot and basically changed the whole thing, so here's my version :) *Note: I bake these, but they certainly could be fried in oil also.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Add 1 Tbsp vegetable oil to small skillet; preheat to medium-low. In a small bowl, combine chili powder, cumin, garlic powder & salt.
    2. 2
      Rub seasonings mixture onto both sides of both chicken breasts; add chicken breasts to small skillet and cook 7-10 minutes, depending on thickness of your breast - until done, turning at least once.
    3. 3
      While chicken is cooking, dice your vegetables.
    4. 4
      Once chicken is done, remove from heat; set aside.
    5. 5
      Heat 1 Tbsp vegetable oil in large skillet; add diced red bell pepper, diced onion, minced garlic cloves and jalapenos to oil; saute until veggies are soft.
    6. 6
      Once chicken is cool enough to handle, slice into small cubes and add to vegetable mixture.
    7. 7
      Stir in frozen corn and black beans; mix thoroughly. Add cayenne now if you want.
    8. 8
      Turn heat to low, and slowly add cheese. Once cheese has melted, remove skillet from heat.
    9. 9
      To assemble eggrolls:.
    10. 10
      Place eggroll wrappers so that the points are facing north/south. Place about 1 1/2 Tbsp of chicken/veggie mixture into center of wrapper. Spread it out log-shaped from side to side, leaving about 1 inch of the wrapper on each side.
    11. 11
      Fold bottom point over mixture, then fold in each side. Then roll eggroll up remaining wrapper. I usually seal the final point with a brush of water.
    12. 12
      Repeat with each eggroll wrapper.
    13. 13
      When all the eggrolls are wrapped, freeze in a single layer for at least 4 hours and up to 2 months.
    14. 14
      To cook, place frozen eggrolls on a cookie sheet, and bake at 375 degrees for 13-16 minutes.
    15. 15
      I like to dip these in a spicy avocado sauce or salsa.

      I made half with chicken and half without. My daughter is a vegetarian. I also made my own eggroll wrappers. This is a good recipe. Baked on a baking sheet with oil and turned after the bottoms browned. I loosely follow recipes as far as measuring spices. Good flavor. I will make this again. Btw, I baked these at 450 degrees.

      Really like how these turned out, they can be adjusted to suit. We made a whole big batch then froze and vacuum sealed them so we can cook the m in batches. Yummy!

      I was very happy to find this recipe. Do not let the ingredient list overwhelm you. I did not change a thing everything worked perfectly. I did fry them at 360 for 3 minutes but next time I will make enough to freeze and bake my portion and fry the rest just to save some calories. Thank you for this wonderful recipe
