Egg Rolls

  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 package Tofurkey Slow Roasted Chick’n
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, mined
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup black beans, drained
  • 1 cup corn (frozen or fresh off the cob)
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup tomatoes, diced and drained
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro (or 1 teaspoon dry cilantro)
  • 1 package Twin Dragon Egg Roll Wrappers
  • oil for frying

Avocado Dipping Sauce

  • 2 large avocados, halved and pitted
  • ½ cup lightly packed fresh cilantro (some stems are okay)
  • ⅓ cup lime juice (from about 2 ½ limes)
  • 1 small jalapeño, seeds and ribs removed, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons water, more as needed to thin
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt


  1. Add oil to large skillet and heat to high.  Add chick’n, onion, garlic then coat with spices.

  3. Add 1 ice cream scoop size of mixture into the middle of egg roll wrapper.
  4. Start at the bottom  and pull over the filling.  Dampen edges with a little water, then fold in two sides and roll tightly to seal everything in.
  5. Fill fry pan with 1″ oil and set to medium high.  It’s ready when a drop of water sprinkled on it causes oil to sizzle.
  6. Add 3-4 egg rolls at once.
  7. Allow to brown on 1 side, flip over and cook until golden brown. Remove from pan and let drain on a cooling rack covered with a paper towel.
  8. Repeat with remaining .

  10. Serve warm with dipping sauce.
