Baked Southwest Eggrolls
Do you remember my Tortellini Cup recipe from a few weeks back? I still had some leftover wonton wrappers to use up, so I rummaged through my pantry to come up with a dish I could use these wrappers with. I always keep certain ingredients in my pantry for occasions such as this. (I refer to it as my “cantry,” haha and it is #CantryThursday after all!)
You just can’t go wrong with any type of recipe using black beans corn, chicken and diced green chilies- at least not in my house!
Canned foods are a great way to get food from its source to your family table- fresh fruits and vegetables are harvested at their peak and canned within hours. And really, my favorite thing about having a well-stocked pantry is having what I need on hand when I need it. Canned food portion sizes are generally just the right size for families and I hate to admit, but sometimes I buy fresh veggies for a recipe and then never get around to said recipe before the veggies turn and need to be tossed.

The beauty of These Baked Southwest Eggrolls is that it really is made with all pantry staples. I used wonton wrappers, (not really a pantry staple) but they would also be delicious using tortillas, phyllo dough, or even pie crust for this recipe. (I’ll admit- I love just about anything made with baked flour tortillas.)
In my photos, I show a separate serving dish for the sour cream and guacamole, but I ended up making a dipping sauce by mixing the two together in a 1 to 1 ratio and then thinning the sauce with a few tablespoons of half n half. The family loved the sauce, so definitely make it!
Baked Southwest Eggrolls Recipe
Baked Southwest Eggrolls
- Prep Time: 10 minutes
- Cook Time: 20
- Total Time: 30
- Category: appetizer
- Method: oven
These easy Baked Southwest Eggrolls are full of tex-mex flavor and make a perfect finger food for parties, game day, get-togethers or even as a quick dinner for the family!
- 1 cup of black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 cup corn, drained
- 10 oz diced chicken breast
- 2 tbsp of diced green chilis
- 1/2 block of cream cheese, softened (4 oz)
- 2 tbsp taco seasoning
- 3/4 cup of shredded cheese, mexican blend
- wonton wrappers, phyllo dough, pie crust, or tortillas
1. Preheat oven to 375f.
2. Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Stir together until completely mixed.
3. Add a couple of scoops of the chicken mixture to the center of the wrapper/dough. Fold the wrapper up like a burrito. (If using tortillas, I recommend just rolling the tortilla up instead of folding the edges over.)
4. Bake at 375f for 15 to 20 minutes or until the outside edges are crispy and golden brown. (If you find the egg roll wrappers are getting too brown around the edges before crisping up, you can move the baking dish to the lowest rack.)
*Recipe notes: If you want to use the entire can of the beans corn and chilis, go ahead. Just increase the cream cheese to 8 oz (the entire block)
If serving these to small children who don’t like spicy stuff, you may want to leave out the diced green chilis.

How many does this recipe make?
around ten or so, depends on how much of the filling you add to each roll.
Looks so yummy! thanks for sharing.
These are delicious! Love that you baked them.
These look just like the southwest egg rolls I order from Chili's! Yummy! So glad that you shared this recipe.
These eggrolls look amazing!
I LOVE egg rolls. I think I have like 10 different versions on my site. I need to try these!
Thanks so much for sharing this. I make regular oriental egg rolls and have been asked if baking would work rather than frying. Now I know. Those look delicious!
How smart to make the eggrolls at home. They look great!
I love getting creative w/ leftover wonton wrappers. These flavors in these sound wonderful and it sure seems easy enough! Win/Win in my book!
I have never made eggrolls. These look delicious!
I love how these are baked and not fried!
Everything you put in those looks fantastic to me. I would make them exactly like you did!
Yummy, my family would love this recipe. I'm going to make this.
Those turned out so good! Every time I try to do a baked eggroll it turns out mushy. Not crispy at all like yours!
Man! Those do sound good! I need to throw a family fiesta and whip some of those up. Then, I need to nab some avocados off the tree.
That looks so good and easy to do. I love how you put a twist on egg rolls.
I've made baked egg rolls before. They turn out great! I love this flavor combination.
I love that these are baked and not fried! So much healthier for you and no gallbladder pain for me. I would have to go light on the chilis but I can honestly say I know I would love these. Yes, I always have canned veggies and fruits around–Being single I tend to not buy fresh because I can never eat it all before it goes bad!
These look amazing! I know my kids would love this.
I've been craving these from BJ's ever since I had to cut gluten from my diet. Just might have to try making a modified version of these with corn tortillas…
