Southwest Egg Rolls w/ Avocado Dipping Sauce

So it’s that time of year again. The day we all use as an excuse to eat an excessive amount of chips and queso and have a few margaritas on a weeknight. For me, that’s just a normal Thursday. But, for all you I’m talking about Cinco de Mayo!

Mexican food is most definitely my favorite food group. From tacos, to enchiladas to quesadillas of course, I just can’t get enough of it! These southwest egg rolls are delicious and pretty easy to make.

The most annoying part of making this meal is rolling up each egg roll, which I have Chad do of course. Aint nobody got time for that. But everything else, you literally just mix up in a big bowl. And for the avocado dipping sauce, just throw in the food processor. Easy peasy. Yes, I just said that. Sooo this is how you roll the egg rolls in pictures.

Prepare your station, you'll need a little bowl of water to seal the edges.

Put a good portion of the mixture on and seal each edge with water.
