Taco Egg Rolls Regular

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.

  • 1 cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese or Mexican Blend
  • Avocado
  • Sour Cream
  • Salsa

Instructions

  1. In a skillet, cook ground beef, onion and taco seasoning until beef is cooked through.
  2. Add Rotel Tomatoes and mix well.
  3. Add Refried Beans and mix well then set aside.
  4. In a fryer or in a sauce pan, add 2 inches of oil. Heat oil until oil is hot and ready.
  5. While oil is heating, make egg rolls.
  6. Lay egg roll out flat. Add 2 Tablespoons of beef mixture to center of egg roll.
  7. Top with 1 tablespoon of cheese.
  8. Add optional avocado.
  9. Seal and roll according to package directions.

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. OMG. Schwans home delivery service used to sell taco rolls that I loved. They are no longer sold. Can’t wait to try these! Thanks so much for sharing!!

  2. Made these tonight. Added lettuce and OMG!!!! SO GOOD. My husband made me freeze extra for nights i work late.

    • Kristina, you sure know how to make a girl’s day! I’m so glad that they turned out great! Ohhh Freezing them sounds like a GREAT idea. I’ll have to try that next time I make them! Let me know how they turn out if you freeze them before I do and I’ll update the recipe to reflect a freezer option too! Thank you so much for making my day by leaving a comment!

    • Hi Nicole! Of course you can bake them. Since I LOVE fried foods, I’d have to say that they wont taste quite as good, but they’ll still be delicious! 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! Enjoy!

  3. Omg, I made these for my family last night and the devoured them!!!! Also made a batch of baked vegetarian version (just excluded the meat and add black beans and a tad bit more taco seasoning) for my one vegetarian daughter and shockingly they turned out just as delicious. Thanks for your recipe, this one is going in the “keeper” file.

    • Mama Tina I’m so glad to hear that your family loved these!! And what a great idea to substitute black beans for ground beef to make them vegetarian! Next time make a double or triple batch and then freeze them for quick snacks or meals when life gets crazy! Thank you so much for your comment! You’ve made my day to hear that your family loved these too!

  4. 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!
