Southwestern Spring Rolls

Southwestern Spring Rolls

In honor of National Taco Day, I made these for supper last night. They were super yummy. I made the vegetarian version of these and made a dipping sauce out of sour cream, taco bell brand southwestern ranch dressing & salsa. I fried these briefly in a little vegetable oil and olive oil mixed, but I want to experiment with them and bake them to see if that will give a similar result of crunchiness without the oil.

Enjoy & Happy National Taco Day!!

 

Ingredients:

16 oz. black beans (rinsed and drained) – I used seasoned black-eyed peas, rinsed & drained.

16 oz. organic corn (you can find it 🙂 )

2 cups fresh washed & drained spinach

1-2 fresh jalapenos, de-seeded and chopped

2 garlic cloves, pressed & minced

1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

1/4 cup onion, minced

1/2 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper

2 cups grated Mexican cheese blend

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

15 large soft flour tortillas

Cooking oil

Salsa of your choice

Sour Cream

Directions:

1 . Combine & mix well all ingredients except oil, tortillas, sour cream & salsa.

2. Put approximately 2 TBLS of mixture on the end of each tortilla and roll tortilla into a thin tacquito.

3. Heat a dry frying pan to med/high heat.

4. Add 1 TBLS oil per 2-3 taquito’s and shallow fry the taquitos just until browned on the outside….drain on paper towels.

Dipping Sauce:

I combined sour cream, Taco Bell brand southwestern ranch dressing & Salsa to make a dipping sauce.

  • As I mentioned these were vegetarian rolls but all you’d need to do if you want to add meat is marinate some chicken breasts in a Mexican seasoning and cook them on a foreman grill or in the fry pan. Then thinly slice or shred your chicken and add to your tortilla mixture

ENJOY!!!
