Southwest Chicken Rolls

I love the combination of all these flavors. Chicken, corn, blackbeans, tomatoes, onions and more. Its the same flavors as my favorite southwest salsa, plus chicken wrapped up in a delicious egg roll and baked into perfection.

  1. Do you suppose they could be made in advance and frozen?

    1. I have frozen some when I’ve had leftovers so I definitely think you should be fine. I’d let them thaw a bit, and reheat them in the oven to get them nice and crispy again!

    How many egg rolls will this make?

    1. I’m sorry Jennifer, I can’t remember exactly how many. My guess is around 18? I know it makes a lot. We usually only eat 1 or 2 a person at a time and we’ve ended up with lots of leftovers. Let me know if you try it!

  3. I wonder if the filling would be just as good in flour tortillas? My son, the picket child on earth, won’t eat egg roll wrappers. I am so going to make this recipe this weekend!

    1. I think it would be great! We have had the filling with just chips, so I think it would be a similar flavor for tortillas. I would probably get the smaller tortillas though (like 8 inch), just because it might be a lot of the same texture with a big tortilla, and you could wrap them up and bake them the same way.

      1. Great, thank you for the tip!

  4. These look sooo goood! I love the southwest eggrolls from Chili’s. I bet these taste even better though!

  5. They look amazing! Looks like something I could get the whole family to eat. I love your pictures of them as well.
