Tex-Mex chicken fajita ingredients put in an egg roll. If you have access to a turkey fryer, I recommend using it to cook these in order to cut down on number of batches and speed up the cooking process. This can be an appetizer or part of a full meal. Goes great with ginger soy sauce or even some pico de gallo.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Beat eggs and milk together to make egg wash.

  • Heat olive oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Cook and stir onion, peppers, mushrooms, and cayenne until slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Mix in pepper Jack cheese until thoroughly combined and starting to melt, 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Place equal amounts of the filling mixture in the center of each egg roll wrapper. Fold in side corners and roll up, sealing edges with egg wash.

  • Cook egg rolls in the hot oil until they float to the top and turn golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Work in batches to avoid overcrowding. Lay flat on paper towels to drain, standing on their ends to drain any excess oil.

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.

With cayenne pepper being the only spice you really can't consider these "fajita". Normally I make as written but knew these would lack flavor without some additions. I left out the optional mushrooms because once again mushrooms don't belong in fajitas. I added 2 tablespoons of my homemade fajita seasoning when I added the chicken and then ended up adding some cumin. They sell fajita seasoning in envelopes. Even taco seasoning would work. As written this would have been bland in my opinion but I"m still giving it 4 stars because with one additional ingredient added they are great. The leftovers help up pretty good too considering they were fried. Read More
