Tex Mex Egg Rolls

Can you believe it is September already?! That means football season is here! One of our favorite fall activities is hanging out watching the games. We love getting together with family and friends and enjoying game day food while our favorite team is playing. These Tex Mex egg rolls are a great appetizer to make for game day, a party or even dinner. The crunchy, golden wrapper filled with a cheesy beef mixture is always a hit. I like to serve the egg rolls with a dip made from salsa and sour cream. They are great dipped in guacamole too!! If you have a lot of people coming over, this recipe can be doubled.  

Tex Mex Egg Rolls Steps

Start making these egg rolls by browning the ground beef. Once cooked through, drain grease and stir in onion. Add cheese, chili seasonings and salsa, stir until combined. I use the chili seasoning that comes in an envelope package. My grocery store keeps them by the gravy packs. Not the chili spice bottle found with the spices. 

Place 3-4 tablespoons of the mixture in the middle of each egg roll wrapper and roll. Place them in hot oil to fry and then drain on a paper towel. They need about 4-5 minutes per side or until golden brown.
