Spicy Southwest Egg Rolls

Recipe by newspapergal




  • Add 1 Tbsp vegetable oil to small skillet; preheat to medium-low. In a small bowl, combine chili powder, cumin, garlic powder & salt.
  • 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.
  • While chicken is cooking, dice your vegetables.
  • Once chicken is done, remove from heat; set aside.
  • 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.
  • Once chicken is cool enough to handle, slice into small cubes and add to vegetable mixture.
  • Stir in frozen corn and black beans; mix thoroughly. Add cayenne now if you want.
  • Turn heat to low, and slowly add cheese. Once cheese has melted, remove skillet from heat.
  • To assemble eggrolls:
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Repeat with each eggroll wrapper.
  • When all the eggrolls are wrapped, freeze in a single layer for at least 4 hours and up to 2 months.
  • To cook, place frozen eggrolls on a cookie sheet, and bake at 375 degrees for 13-16 minutes.
  • I like to dip these in a spicy avocado sauce or salsa.
