Southwestern Egg Rolls with Smoky Cheddar
East meets West in a spread full of so much flavor, it’s bound to please those on both sides of the field. These Southwestern egg rolls are cheesy, spicy, all-around tasty as either an appetizer or side dish.
Combine salsa, corn, rice, Cheddar, queso fresco, and scallions in a large bowl.
Halve wraps diagonally into triangles.
Arrange one triangle so the long side is facing you. Brush wrap edges lightly with water. Place 1 heaping Tbsp. salsa mixture in center of long side of wrap. Fold left and right corners over filling. Carefully roll wrap toward the top of the triangle to seal. Place egg roll on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat process with remaining filling and wraps. Chill or freeze egg rolls until ready to fry.
Heat oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high until it shimmers. Fry egg rolls in batches of 8–10 (without overcrowding), turning them occasionally to brown all sides, 5–7 minutes if frozen or 3–5 minutes if chilled.
Serve egg rolls with Roasted Tomato Chile Dip.
