I recently saw the idea for Southwestern egg rolls on Mel’s Kitchen Cafe and was instantly interested. For one, I have never made egg rolls; they are still on my list to make. Secondly, I love Mexican food. I was surprised to see that they were inside tortillas instead, but figured that is probably a better idea anyway. I decided to make my own combination of ingredients for the filling, because I wasn’t a huge fan of the black beans in the recipe I saw.
I think that the refried beans are perfect for the filling because they keep it from becoming too dry. More green chiles can be used in the recipe if you want your rolls extra spicy. You could also add rice for some added texture. These little egg rolls are great as an appetizer or as a full meal. Just know that they are really filling! My roommate and I ate three each for dinner and were stuffed.
