We don’t typically order appetizers when dining out, but whenever we go to the Cheesecake Factory we make an exception for these tasty devils–Cheesecake Factory Tex Mex Egg Rolls! I’m sure many of you have tried them as well and know what I mean when I say these are DE-LIC-IOUS! The ingredients in their egg rolls are really simple, so I knew I had to make them at home, and boy were they good! They are even great without the chicken, if you’d rather have a meatless meal. Serve them with our super easy Creamy Cilantro Dipping Sauce and you’ll be in heaven!

Yields about 12-15 eggrolls
For the Egg Rolls:
1 package Egg Roll Wrappers
1 (15 oz) can Black Beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup corn
1 green bell pepper, diced
2 medium tomatoes, diced, (pat dry with a paper towel to remove some of the liquid)
1 small onion, diced
1-2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (optional)
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 cup shredded cheese (optional)
2-3 Tbsp Oil for light frying*
For the Creamy Cilantro Dipping Sauce:
6 oz. cream cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
1 bunch cilantro
3 heaping Tbsp of your favorite salsa
In a large mixing bowl combine black beans, corn, pepper, tomatoes, onion, chicken, cumin, garlic powder, chili powder and cheese.
Open Egg roll wrappers and place a moist rag over them to keep them from drying out.
Grab one wrapper and place it on your counter with one corner pointing towards you. Place a heaping spoonfull of mixture on the eggroll wrapper. Take the wrapper end that is pointing towards you and fold it over the filling mixture. Fold in the sides of the wrapper, and then continue rolling the wrapper tightly all the way to the end. You can brush the ends of the wrapper with a little bit of water to help it stick together.
In a large skillet over medium high heat, drizzle 2-3 Tablespoons of canola or vegetable oil. When the oil is hot, place a few egg rolls at a time into the pan. Continually rotate them in the pan so that you toast all sides, but don’t burn them. Once toasted, place egg rolls on a paper towel to dry.
For the dipping sauce, blend all sauce ingredients in a food processor until smooth.
