Easy Cheesy Guacamole Egg Rolls Baked or Fried
My husband is a guacamole connoisseur. He sometimes surprises me with a homemade margarita and fresh guacamole. I decided I would surprise him with a new fun way to eat it. No chips required with this guacamole. This is easy delicious finger food, that only takes minutes to prepare. This recipe is for 8 egg rolls, however it could easily be doubled.
5 oz (1/2 a small container) Store Bought Guacamole or you may use my bacon guacamole recipe
8 Egg Roll Wraps I used All Natural Nasoya Brand
1 Cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese Shredded
4 oz (1/2 small container) of Best Yet Cheddar Flavored Jalapeno Cream Cheese Spread
Canola Oil (for frying)
In a mixing bowl combine your guacamole, shredded cheese, and cheddar flavored jalapeno cream cheese. Lay your egg roll wraps out, and spoon a heaping tablespoon of filling out into each. Follow the directions on you package of wraps for folding. Don't over fill, you want them to stay closed. Heat oil on stove top, in a large skillet to 350 F degrees. Very important, place rolls flap down to start frying. Turn until they are golden brown on all sides, this will only take 2-3 minutes.
You may prefer to bake your egg rolls in a 400 F degree preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown. You will want to spray your baking tray with non stick cooking spray first, and lightly brush your egg rolls with olive oil before baking. Place them flap down on baking tray.
I garnished our serving tray with baby arugula, since it's what I had on hand, cilantro would have been nice. I served hot and mild salsa on the side for dipping. Hot for me, and mild for the boys. Well that's one of many things that have been making, what about you? Come share at our weekly Anything Goes linky party.
