Ingredients

FOR THE EGG ROLLS—

FOR THE CHIPOTLE CREAM DIP—

Instructions

Sauté turkey, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, and onion powder in oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for 1 minute. Stir in spinach, corn, beans, sweet pepper, scallions, and jalapeño. Cook until spinach wilts, about 1 minute. Off heat, add cheese and salt.
To assemble, lay an egg roll wrapper on a work surface with a corner toward you; brush edges with egg wash. Place 1/4 cup filling on wrapper and fold bottom corner over filling, tucking tightly; fold in sides and roll to the end. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling. Stir together all ingredients for the dip.
Heat 2 cups vegetable oil to 350–360° in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Fry egg rolls until crisp, about 5 minutes; drain them on paper towels. Serve egg rolls with dip.

Add cheese to the filling off heat so it doesn't melt completely. Let filling cool slightly before rolling.
