Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 (14 ounce) package egg roll wrappers
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
  • 1 (4 ounce) can diced green chilies, drained
  • 2 cups shredded pepperjack cheese
  • 4 cups oil for frying, or as needed

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Crumble ground beef into a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until evenly browned, and drain off grease. Add taco seasoning, and cook according to package directions. Set aside.
  2. 2 Heat 1 inch of oil in a large skillet, or preheat a deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. 3 Lay out one egg roll wrapper at a time, and place a little more than a tablespoon of the ground beef in the center. Top with a small spoonful of green chilies, and a little bit of shredded cheese. Roll up according to package instructions, and seal edges, wetting with water if necessary. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
  4. 4 Fry the rolls in the hot oil until golden brown on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove from the oil to drain on paper towels. Serve hot and fresh.

  5. My son made this recipe for his girlfriend and we were lucky enough to be included. They were wonderful. A nice change from regular tacos. We didn't have any green chilies, so he substituted about 1/2 cup salsa instead. He doubled wrapped the rolls so they wouldn't come apart. Served with sour cream, salsa and - Read more ...

I think maybe a little corn and some white rice might really improve them. It's definitely worth playing around with. As - Read more ...

  9. Recipe was great. Quick prep and cooking. The time consuming thing was rolling the egg rolls but that was fun to do. Nice twist on the traditional egg roll.
  10. These were served to me recently when I lunched at a friend's home. Her filling included the ground beef nicely spiced with taco seasoning, but also included cooked rice, black beans, and the shredded cheese and diced green chilis. She mixed all of the ingredients into a large bowl and put a quarter cup of - Read more ...
