Mexican Chicken Eggrolls

   This week the theme for our recipe exchange was Mexican.  My husband and I absolutely love Mexican food so I was really excited about this exchange.  I received a recipe from Jey of The Jey of Cooking for Mexican Chicken Wonton Rolls that sounded awesome.  I had a pack of eggroll wrappers at home, so I substituted those for the wonton wraps.

   I used much of the original recipe but added in some shredded green pepper and onion for a bit of crunch inside of the roll.  The rolls were cheesy, a bit spicy, and filled with flavor.  The eggrolls themselves were brown and crunchy.  The avocado sauce on the side was the perfect cool, creamy contrast to the spicy chicken eggrolls.  We had these as an entree but they would be great as an appetizer when watching a baseball or football game as well.

Mexican Chicken Eggrolls (adapted from The Jey of Cooking)
2 chicken breasts, cooked and chopped
2 c. pepper jack cheese, shredded
1/2 green pepper, shredded
1/2 onion, shredded
1 t. chili powder
1 t. cumin
1/2 t. garlic powder
1 t. salt
Eggroll Wrappers
2 T. butter

For the Creamy Avocado Sauce:
1 avocado, mashed
1/2 c. sour cream
2 t. hot sauce
1 t. salt

1.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2.  In a bowl combine the chicken, cheese, pepper, onion, chili powder, cumin, and garlic powder.Mix well to combine.

3.  Get a small bowl of water and a brush.  Place an eggroll on the table and fill with 2 teaspoons of the chicken mixture.  Fold in the edges about 1/4 inch then roll up.  Brush the end of the eggroll with water and press to seal.  Place on the baking sheet.  Repeat until all the chicken mixture is used.

4.  Melt the butter in a bowl and get a basting brush.  Brush each eggroll with butter covering the top, sides, and ends.  Bake for 22-25 minutes or until brown.  Remove from oven.
5.  In a small bowl combine the avocado, sour cream, hot sauce, and salt.  Mix until smooth.  Serve with chicken eggrolls.
