We love egg rolls at our house and these Baked Mexican Egg Rolls are wonderful appetizers to serve at your next family gathering!

I have to give credit to my niece Nicole, who first introduced us to these yummy bites! I immediately went home and searched recipes until I found one similar to what she had and took things from there.

Talk about yummy. Tender chunks of chicken, black beans, corn, black olives, all wrapped up in a crunchy egg roll wrapper. Plus, baked is healthier than fried, right? So there you go. Even better!

  • chicken breast strips (1 pound)
  • vegetable oil
  • can of black beans, rinsed and drained
  • Mexican-style corn, drained
  • yellow onion
  • black olives, diced

Instructions for Making This Recipe

Gather your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand on the counter or table. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare your ingredients. Slice the chicken into 1″ bite-size pieces. Dice the yellow onion and mince the garlic. Finely shred a block of Colby Jack cheese.

In a large preheated skillet, cook the chicken pieces in hot oil until golden brown. Add in the rinsed and drained black beans, drained corn, diced onion, minced black olives, and the minced garlic.

Measure out the ground cumin, chili powder, kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Sprinkle over the chicken mixture and stir to combine.

Cook on low for 5-7 minutes. Sprinkle with the finely shredded cheese. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 10-15 minutes.

Assembling the Egg Rolls

To prepare the egg rolls, moisten edges of each egg roll with water and place 3-4 tablespoons of filling in the lower half. Fold as you would per directions on egg roll package. Place each on a baking sheet covered with tinfoil that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Brush tops of each egg roll generously with vegetable oil.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Turn rolls as needed to prevent burning on one side. Allow to cool.

Cut the Baked Mexican Egg Rolls diagonally in half or thirds, depending on how many guests you’re serving. Believe me, they won’t last long. Serve with Homemade Guacamole Dip, sour cream, and/or salsa. This recipe will make 32-48 pieces.
