Chili’s South Western Egg Rolls
This is a great copycat recipe of Chili’s South Western Egg Rolls and can be used as an appetizers, or dinner since it got everything already in one small package. 🙂 It’s best to make these a day ahead before consumption. The 4 hours 20 minute prep time includes freezing this appetizer.
1/2 cup corn (drained)
1/2 cup black beans
6 minced green onion
2 chopped tomatoes
1/2 cut up red bell pepper

1 cup shredded Mexican Cheese
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
1 tsp chili powder
salt and pepper (if desired)

1. Boil the chicken till done and dice up. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Stir in the cut up chicken then add the green onions and red or green pepper. Cook and stir 3 minutes, until tender. Mix in corn, black bean.
2. Add the spinach, parsley, cumin, chili powder, salt pepper and hot sauce. Cook and stir 3 minutes, until well blended and tender. Remove from heat and stir in the Mexican Cheese so that it melts.
