Baked Mexican Egg rolls with Cilantro-Lime Crema

Home » Baked Mexican Egg rolls with Cilantro-Lime Crema

I love egg rolls because you can stuff them with tons of different flavor combinations for any number of delicious surprises. I was invited to a party where every guest was supposed to bring a Mexican dish. Mexican potluck isn’t my strong suit, and I was wondering what I could bring to feed a crowd that is also finger food. I decided to go for the egg rolls and came up with this wonderful little idea. They’re almost like little burritos, filled with chorizo, jalapeños, refried beans, queso fresco, and cilantro. They are devoured in no time at parties! I bake mine both because it’s healthier and because it’s better for party conditions. These can be easily fried and I’m sure it’s an even tastier treat. Let’s face it, almost everything is better fried! These egg rolls can be frozen for later use. Just put them in the freezer after filling and add 5 minutes to the bake time. Serve with this delicious cilantro lime crema for extra flavor.
