Southwestern Egg Rolls

At my church potluck, these crispy, spicy snacks went fast thanks to the triple kick from the Italian sausage, Mexicorn and chiles. Want to balance the hot with a little cool? Sour cream and guacamole are a tasty party trick. —Jacqueline Bower, Washington, Iowa

  • Makes
    1-1/2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 pound bulk hot Italian sausage
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (11 ounces) Mexicorn, drained
  • 1 can (10 ounces) diced tomatoes and green chiles, undrained
  • 1 package (8.8 ounces) ready-to-serve Spanish rice
  • 18 egg roll wrappers
  • Oil for frying
  • Sour cream and guacamole, optional

Directions

  • In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until no longer pink, breaking it into crumbles; drain. Stir in beans, Mexicorn, tomatoes and rice; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • With 1 corner of an egg roll facing you, place 1/3 cup filling just below center of wrapper. (Cover remaining wrappers with a damp paper towel until ready to use.) Fold bottom corner over filling; moisten remaining wrapper edges with water. Fold side corners toward center over filling. Roll up tightly, pressing at tip to seal. Repeat.
  • In an electric skillet, heat 1 in. of oil to 375°. Fry egg rolls, 2 at a time, 1-2 minutes or until golden brown, turning occasionally. Drain on paper towels. If desired, serve with sour cream and guacamole.
