I love appetizers! Anyone else with me? I sometimes order an appetizer as my meal. Chili’s southwest eggrolls are one of my favorites. I am not getting paid to say this, just love them! I was trying to knock them off and make them at home and I think they came out great.
These are yummy!! I smashed up an avocado and put some ranch with it for dipping. They are not the healthiest because they are fried. I don’t make them that often but they are great as a special treat.
Copycat recipe: Chili’s southwest eggrolls

I have seen people say you can do eggrolls in the oven and they come out well but I have tried that twice now and had no luck. Mine get cooked well in certain spots and remain uncooked in others. If anyone has tried this and got it to work, I would love to hear your tips.
