Recipe of the Month – Avocado Egg Rolls

I love egg rolls. I love the traditional style or Southwestern or even these which are a version of the ones served at the Cheesecake Factory. Actually this recipe is a combination of two things I love – avocados and egg rolls. Yum. And these are pretty easy to make – only taking 20 minutes.


1 cup vegetable oil

3 avocados, halved, peeled and seeded

1 Roma tomato, diced

1/4 cup diced red onion

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves

Juice of 1 lime

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

8 egg roll wrappers

Cilantro Dipping Sauce

3/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, loosely packed

1/3 cup sour cream

1 jalapeno, seeded

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1 clove garlic

Juice of 1 lime

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


To make the cilantro dipping sauce, combine cilantro, sour cream, jalapeno, mayonnaise, garlic and lime juice in the bowl of a food processor; season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet or Dutch oven over medium high heat. In a medium bowl, gently mash avocados using a potato masher. Add tomato, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper, to taste, and gently toss to combine. Working one at a time, place avocado mixture in the center of each wrapper. Bring the bottom edge of the wrapper tightly over the filling, folding in the sides. Continue rolling until the top of the wrapper is reached. Using your finger, rub the edges of the wrapper with water, pressing to seal. Repeat with remaining wrappers and avocado mixture. Working in batches, add egg rolls to the Dutch oven and fry until evenly golden brown and crispy, about 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Serve immediately with cilantro dipping sauce.
