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.

  • 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.
