If there is one thing you should know about me, it’s that I love all things fried.

If I had to pick between eating a healthy baked item and an unhealthy fried item, I would choose fried every time.

The crispy fried flavor of the oil on the item is just so good.

It’s one of the reasons I love egg rolls so much.

Well…Fried Egg Rolls.

Not to mention that egg rolls are SUPER easy to put together and cook.

You can literally put ANYTHING in an egg roll, fry it up and it is GUARANTEED to taste delicious!

Now if you aren’t a fan of the extra calories that come with fried foods, try an Air Fryer.

I’ve heard so many great things about them and plan on getting one for myself soon!

These Taco Egg Rolls were a creation I whipped up one day after Taco Tuesday.

I had some extra ground beef laying around, didn’t feel like making traditional tacos again, and then saw the egg roll wrappers in the fridge.

Bam, next thing I know, I’m tossing all my favorite leftover taco ingredients into an egg roll.

And that my friends, is how Taco Egg Rolls became a thing in our house.

I also love how easy these are to take on the road or pack up in a lunch!

If you’ve got a toaster oven at work, you can take a few of these, toast them up and enjoy them with your favorite salsa, sour cream or even guacamole dip, while all your co-workers drool over your tasty homemade meal.

Not only will the look of these drive your co-workers mad, but the smell of how tasty they are will too!

Taco lovers will appreciate this twist on a classic recipe.

These Taco Egg Rolls are a perfect item to make during a weeknight or if you have leftover taco meat and aren’t sure what to do with it, you now do!

If you are in need of a great side dish to go with this recipe, I highly recommend our recipe for Esquites – Mexican Corn Salad.

Notes

For a baked version: Preheat oven to 425*F.

Lay egg rolls seam side down on a prepared cookie sheet. I like to use a baking mat or non stick foil, however you can also spray the pan.

Lightly spray tops of egg rolls with cooking spray and bake for 10 - 15 minutes until golden and crispy!

  1. I’m looking forward to trying this, my family loves tacos, and egg rolls so to put both together its going to blow their mind lol. I want to make some to freeze as well, do you have any tips on the best way to do that? Thank you.

    • I’ve never frozen these before, but I would say make them as directed but do not cook them. Lay them on a lined cookie sheet and freeze for 2 hours. Then toss them into a freezer bag. When ready to cook, cook as directed or bake at 400*F for 30 minutes (total guess on time so play with it and see what works best!) I hope this helps!

  2. Hey there,

    Can’t wait to try this, looks yummy.
    Just curious though, recipe says a pack of Taco seasoning or homemade, I will be using home made so what measure would I use to equal 1 pack?
