Southwestern Egg Rolls

I realize we’re all planning and preparing for Easter this week (I am too — so excited for Sunday), but in just over two weeks, my most favorite of foodie holidays will be HERE!

What could it be? Well, let’s just say that guacamole is best friends with this holiday. It’s Cinco de Mayo! The #15MinuteSuppers bloggers and I are here to get you ready for your festive foodie holiday with lots of easy Cinco de Mayo recipes (see the end of this post for all the links).

And while that should be pretty cool all on it’s own, we are also holding a giveaway — with multiple winners — for some awesome Wholly Guacamole and even more Wholly products. The first place winner will get a year supply of Wholly Guacamole (in the form of coupons) and other goodies and then there will be seventeen (17)  2nd place prizes who will get a cooler of Wholly products. I got my own little cooler shipment last week and I’m LOVING it. I’ve been a Wholly Guacamole fan for a while, but I was able to try their Wholly Avocado and their Wholly Salsa for the first time and I’m hooked on it.

Wholly Guacamole

One of the things that makes my Southwestern Egg Rolls so easy is that I used the Wholly Avocado, which is 100% avocado. There was no avocado to open, no seed to remove…just open the package and you are ready to go. I can see this being particularly  helpful to those of you who like avocado, but find the whole opening of one a pain. Plus, you don’t have to rely on your store having ripe avocados — just pick up a package of this and your almost halfway there.

The filling of the Southwestern Egg Rolls consists of the Wholly Avocado, pepper jack cheese, and a mixture of black beans and corn that have been spiced up a bit.

All this is layered and rolled up in an egg roll wrapper. Then, it’s fried in oil to crispy perfection. I know you might want to ask me if these can be baked and the answer is yes, but I don’t prefer to. I don’t fry a lot of foods, but there is a few things I insist on frying and this is one of them.

How to Make Southwestern Egg Rolls

I suppose I should add a little disclaimer: this isn’t “real” Mexican food. I’m not even completely sure it’s totally Southwestern. Eh, could be…depends on who you ask. I do know it’s certainly not an egg roll — just made in an egg roll wrapper. But let’s just go with it all and make our bellies happy.Wholly Salsa

While these really don’t need extra condiments for dipping, I still like to have something to dip them in. We generally have sour cream or maybe even ranch dressing. But this time, I decided to use the Wholly Salsa. It’s so, so good and was a great choice.

    First, this looks like such a wonderful recipe that I had to pin it and will be trying it out in the next few weeks. I love corn and black beans so this is a perfect recipe for me. Additionally, the idea of 15 minute dinners really captures my interest because I have those days that I don’t have much time to put into cooking. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!
