Egg rolls are life, plain and simple. You get the best of both worlds, a super crunchy and crispy outside and an inside that gets filled with all kinds of flavorful goodies. I will say though that these aren’t your typical egg rolls.
They have southwest flavors of cumin, chili powder and paprika that get mixed with black beans, corn, bell pepper, jalapenos, cilantro, jalapeno monterey jack cheese and chicken. Just one bite and you will be hooked!
Enjoy these on their own as is, with hot sauce or did I mention my spicy avocado crema dipping sauce. It takes these egg rolls over the top! Because it is made with avocado, greek yogurt and low fat sour cream this dip is sure to be extra creamy. You can adjust your spice level to your liking by adding in as much or as little jalapenos before blending. Plus, the lime juice adds a little bit of tang to make for the perfect spicy, tangy, creamy combo.
I love that these are a little healthier because there is no cooking oil involved. You just need your air fryer and to let it do the work for you. A little tip before you air fry: spraying the tops of your egg roll wrappers after you put them in the basket and before you cook. Doing this ensures they come out extra golden and crispy.
Serve these as a pre-dinner snack, an appetizer at your next gathering or at your office potluck. They are guaranteed to be a hit!
