Wish Upon A Dish: Copy Cat Chili's Southwest Egg Rolls

Copy Cat Chili's Southwest Egg Rolls

This should be interesting. I can't remember the last time I had one, so I can't remember what was in them so I'm relying on the internet to get me started.
After I made the insides I rolled them up egg roll-style. Left & right sides in toward filling, bottom over sides then rolled until sealed. I egg washed all 4 points of the wrapper.

I had enough filling for 19 egg rolls. I am frying mine not baking, I just like the crunchy crust you get from frying.

Along with the rolls I made a chipotle ranch sour cream dipping sauce.

Southwest Egg Rolls

Chipotle Ranch Sour Cream Dipping Sauce

* 1 tbls Chipotle in Adobo Sauce
* 1 tbls Agave Nectar
* 2/3 cup sour cream
* 1/2 packet ranch dressing dry seasonings

Mix and refrigerate.

These were so good, I would make them again, easily. The Nudge told me they are like the Chili's egg rolls but actually thought they had more flavor and he had seconds and thirds, they were that good. I put 8 away in the freezer for another night when I just don't feel like cooking or I have nothing to cook. He took 2 for lunch with extra dipping sauce and I have 2 for lunch here.
