Black Bean Southwest Egg Rolls, easy to make and they taste fantastic. You only need a few ingredients to make them. I made them by using egg roll wrappers that you get in the produce section, at your local grocer. I cooked the black beans from scratch, or you can use canned black beans, either will work just fine. Once you have your beans ready, it was easy, I mixed together black beans, seasonings and cheese. Next, I added a scoop of bean mixture on to each egg roll wrapper and sealed the wrapper. I put the finished egg rolls in hot oil, 425 degrees, for about 4 minutes, until they were golden brown on each side. Remove golden brown egg rolls from hot oil and let them cool for 5 minutes. Now they are ready to be dipped, oh so delicious. I dip them in the Mayo Parmesan Cilantro dipping sauce which tastes so amazing. This was a quick preparation, it only took about 20 minutes to mix filling together and make 10 black bean Southwest egg rolls. Black bean Southwest egg rolls, are sooo good that they taste just like the ones you get in the restaurant.
Now comes the fun part, roll them up. By the way kids love to make these egg rolls, they like the hands on activity in making their own food.
Now dab a little water on the edges.
Roll them up and seal it and it is ready to hit the hot oil.
Ready for dipping, oh yummy!
