Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place eggroll wraps on a work surface. Place 1 whole green chile diagonally on the wrap. Add about 2 tablespoons pepper Jack cheese, or enough to cover chile. Fold bottom corner over filling. Roll snugly halfway to cover filling. Fold in both sides snugly against filling to look like an envelope; moisten edges of last flap with a moistened finger. Roll wrap up and seal top corner using water again to moisten edges to make them stick. Lay flap-side down until ready to cook. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

  • Heat canola oil in a deep saucepan over medium heat to 350°F. Lower eggrolls with the flap side down carefully into the hot oil in batches. Fry until golden, turning occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to drain. Repeat with remaining eggrolls.

Cook's Note:

You can also bake the eggrolls in the oven. Heat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Place rolls on a baking sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray. Lightly brush the tops with olive oil and bake until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. For added crispiness, you can put them under the broiler for 1 to 2 minutes, checking every 20 to 30 seconds.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.
