Baked Southwest Egg Rolls

These Baked Southwest Egg Rolls make the perfect appetizer, side dish, or even main dish.

I am not always the biggest egg roll fan. I mean, I will eat them if they are in front of me, but I won’t specifically order them – UNLESS I’m at Chili’s.

If I’m at Chili’s I usually order their Southwest Egg Rolls as my meal (I’m not even joking – you can ask my husband. hahaha).

They are amazing fried, just like they serve them at the restaurant, but I try to avoid frying my foods at home (probably because I hate having my whole house smell like what we ate for dinner).

I came across this recipe for Baked Southwest Egg Rolls – and they were right up to par. Plus, you cut down on calories by cutting out the frying! They perfect for an appetizer, or for your main dish.

Mexican food lover or not, these will not disappoint.

top them off:

I love these egg rolls as they are, but I also love topping them off with salsa, sour cream, guacamole, etc. We also love putting on fresh vegetables, such as olives, tomatoes, cucumbers, banana peppers, etc.

You can easily make these your now, by adding your favorites as well. My kid love dipping them in ketchup.
