Southwestern Egg Rolls

Last night I was on the phone with my Mom, she was baking up some yummy egg rolls. This reminded me of these delicious Southwestern Egg Rolls I made on New Years Eve. I found the recipe on a fantastic blog - it's a gold mine of wonderful recipe ideas, and the ingredients aren't so out-of-this-world that it's harder to throw the recipe together.

The egg roll wrappers can be found in the produce section. I remember the first time I was looking for them at the grocery store... couldn't find them anywhere! To me, the produce section seems like a strange place to eventually find these, but they're right there next to the wonton wrappers.

I think the next time I make this, I'll use less spinach or avoid it altogether (I already used half the recipe called for, and it was too much for my taste). Annie was right, eating this with salsa hits the spot perfectly. I love how crunchy the wonton wrappers become in the oven! It's delicious! But, I learned (from the leftovers) that the next day, the egg roll shells aren't as wonderfully crispy - so gobble them up the day you make them!
