Baked Southwest Egg Rolls Recipe & Fresh Cravings Salsa

Share

Have you ever had baked egg rolls?  They are super yummy, this was my first time to make them and I had to say this baked southwest egg rolls recipe is awesome.  Now, I like traditional egg rolls but I wanted to make something everyone could enjoy.  Since we live in southern New Mexico I figured I would play it safe and make something I knew everyone could enjoy when they come over to watch the big game.

The hubs and I are going to have a few friend and family members come over.  Which means there will be kids running around and the guys playing “sofa coach” yelling at the TV, lol.  Hey, it’s true.  They all sit around and yell at the TV because they suddenly realize that they would make a better coach or referee.

Baked Southwest Eggrolls

All that “sofa coach” playing and running around that the kids and guys do always make them hungry so I try to have enough easy snacking food for everyone.  However, this year I’m going for something a little more filling than your traditional chips and salsa.  I want to kick things up a bit with something a little more filling and fresh like these Baked Southwest Egg rolls with Salsa.

Baked Southwest Egg Rolls Recipe

To make these yummy baked southwest eggrolls you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • Fresh Cravings Salsa
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 cloves of garlic (minced)
  • 1 small onion (diced)
  • 1/4 cup black olives (sliced)
  • 1/4 cup mushrooms (sliced)
  • 3 green onions
  • 1/4 or more green chili (add more or  less, hot or mild according to your taste buds)
  • 1 package egg roll wrappers
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt (optional but I like it)
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 cup of your favorite grated cheese

To make these yummy ground beef egg rolls follow the below directions:

Remember to give the meat a good taste test before you are done.  If you need any additional seasonings, this would be the time to add it.

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

  • Brown ground beef, garlic, and onion on medium heat.  Once ground beef is browned add green chili, green onions, black olives, green onions, mushrooms and season to your liking.  Add 1/2 cup water and cook on medium low until all the water has boiled out.  Remove from heat and allow to cool just a bit so you can safely make the egg rolls.

  • Fold up cheese and meat into egg rolls.
  • Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray, place egg rolls on the cookie sheet and spay the tops of the egg rolls with a little cooking spray.
  • Place in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until tops and bottoms are a light golden brown.

How to fold an egg roll

I’m no pro at folding egg rolls but thought I would share how I do it with you.

TIP: Before you get started I just wanted to tell you that it works better if you add the cheese first.  If for some reason your meat has any moisture and you add it first it will soften the egg roll wrapper and make it weak.  If I add the cheese first, I don’t have this problem.

Lay the egg roll wrapper out flat.

  • Place cheese and some meat mixture in the middle of the egg roll, just a tad big below the corners.

  • Use your finger to brush on a small amount of water from the bottom quarter up to the two middle edges. Fold the bottom up to the center.

    This looks so yummy. We do a lot of egg rolls at my house but we usually fry them, so I love this baked version. I am doing low carbs so I can't try these for a couple months but I will!
