Instructions Checklist
  • Crumble ground beef into a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until evenly browned, and drain off grease. Add taco seasoning, and cook according to package directions. Set aside.

  • Heat 1 inch of oil in a large skillet, or preheat a deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Lay out one egg roll wrapper at a time, and place a little more than a tablespoon of the ground beef in the center. Top with a small spoonful of green chilies, and a little bit of shredded cheese. Roll up according to package instructions, and seal edges, wetting with water if necessary. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.

  • Fry the rolls in the hot oil until golden brown on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove from the oil to drain on paper towels. Serve hot and fresh.

These were delicious! I didn't change anything in the recipe except I sprayed them with butter spray and baked them for 20 minutes at 425 My end result was 14 rolls all of which were gone in less than an hour. My coworkers said this is the best thing I've made so far. Guess I'll be doing this one again real soon! Read More

I made these because I had extra ground beef and my husband mistakenly purchased egg roll wrappers. These are horrible for you! I did not care for the taste of these egg rolls. Read More

These were served to me recently when I lunched at a friend's home. Her filling included the ground beef nicely spiced with taco seasoning but also included cooked rice black beans and the shredded cheese and diced green chilis. She mixed all of the ingredients into a large bowl and put a quarter cup of the mixture on each egg roll wrapper. This saved a little time so as not to top each egg roll individually with cheese and green chilies. The rest of the directions were identical although she sealed the edges with an egg wash and it was a great lunch accompanied with some chips and guacamole and a mixed greens salad. Read More

As written not bad but a little bit bland. I halved the recipe but used about 2/3 of the taco seasoning packet. I also added some sauteed onion and a wee bit of cumin. I think maybe a little corn and some white rice might really improve them. It's definitely worth playing around with. As with all egg rolls I make I squirted them with butter-flavored Pam and did them in the oven. We had them with salsa. Thanks! Read More

I tried this as written the first time. The second I made some changes that we thought made this even better. I added some corn and black beans to the meat mixture. Didn't fry with the lettuce inside instead topped with the lettuce. We liked the way it worked just a little better. Thanks for the post. Read More

My son made this recipe for his girlfriend and we were lucky enough to be included. They were wonderful. A nice change from regular tacos. We didn't have any green chilies, so he substituted about 1/2 cup salsa instead. He doubled wrapped the rolls so they wouldn't come apart. Served with sour cream, salsa and a salad, it is a great meal. Read More

When I made these I was afraid I wouldnt have enough filling so I added and extra taco seasoning and some refried beans. Well instead I ended up having extra which was great becuase I turned the extra meat into a taco pie. It was a perfect way to get an extra dish with out a lot of fuss. Will do this one again. My company raved over both:) Read More

Recipe was great. Quick prep and cooking. The time consuming thing was rolling the egg rolls but that was fun to do. Nice twist on the traditional egg roll. Read More
