Baked Southwest Eggrolls

I love the deep fried version of these, but I avoid deep frying things at home. When I saw this recipe the requires you to bake them I knew I had to give them a try. This was my first time ever using egg roll wrappers. I was worried I would screw something up...but it was actually fun working with them! There are already ideas in my head for future uses with them.

Adapted from Annie's Eats, orginially from Ezra Pound Cake


2 cups frozen corn, thawed
1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1/4 cup diced roasted red peppers
2 cup shredded reduced-fat Mexican cheese blend
1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chiles, drained
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1 package egg roll wrappers (I made 23 total)

salsa/guacamole/ranch dressing for serving


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine everything but the egg roll wrappers and dips for serving. Place 1/4 cup mixture in the center of one egg roll wrapper. Fold bottom corner over filling. Fold sides toward center over filling. Moisten remaining corner with water and roll up tightly to seal. Repeat with remaininf mixture and wrappers.

Place seam-side down on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Spray tops of egg rolls with cooking spray. Bake at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes until lightly brown. Turn them halfway through baking.

Serve with salsa/guacamole/ranch dressing.
