Taco Egg Rolls

Taco Egg Rolls

Taco Egg RollsTwice a year, in my home, we make appetizers the main meal, New Year’s Eve and the Super Bowl. (Three times if you count spending Christmas Eve with my in-laws.) I look forward to those meals every year. For some reason, eating appetizers as dinner seems like a guilty pleasure, a complete and total indulgence. 

When I saw this recipe for Taco Egg Rolls on Pinterest, I was immediately intrigued. I love and adore tacos, and I love egg rolls! What a perfect combination! They also turned out fairly easy to make, with the most complicated part being rolling the egg rolls. 

To start, I browned 1 lb of ground beef, and preheated the oven to 375°. Once done, I added the taco seasoning and mixed it with the beef, adding about 1/3 a cup of water (not as much as you normally do for a taco).

Meat scooped with the cheese. Ready to roll.

Next, I scooped a portion of the meat on an egg roll wrapper, added some cheese, then rolled it. Using a pastry brush and a small bowl of water, I sealed the egg roll then placed it on a baking sheet.

When all the egg rolls were ready, I brushed a small amount of olive oil on each roll. I baked the rolls for 15 minutes. About half way through, I pulled them out and flipped them. 

I let them cool for about 5 minutes and served them with sour cream! Mmmm….so good!

  1. Hmmm……..taco egg rolls, you say. Now that is interesting. I’m stopping in from Let’s Get Real today. I can imagine that these would be quite tasty. As you said, egg rolls are good and so are tacos. I made some pizza egg rolls and they turned out pretty good. I need to try these next. What do you think about putting other taco ingredients in the egg rolls? Make too much of a mess or get soggy, maybe?

    1. Since you end up baking them, I wouldn’t think that putting much anything else in them would work, with the exception of salsa. The next time I make these, I do plan on having a side of salsa and maybe guacamole in addition to the sour cream.
