I am all for quick and easy (but still healthy) recipes. These egg rolls are beyond delicious and are absolutely fool proof. The bonus: they only take 5 ingredients!! I use a few little short cuts that skimp on time but NOT on flavor.
Five Ingredient Southwestern Turkey Egg Rolls
Servings: ~12 egg rolls (depends on how much you fill them)
1 lb of ground turkey
2 tsp of taco seasoning*
2 cans of southwestern vegetable soup*
egg roll wraps
shredded cheese - 3 cheese mexican blend
+ olive oil
+ Since these are pantry items, I consider them "free" ingredients and they don't count towards the five. :P
* I made my own taco seasoning! Check out recipe below. It also includes salt & pepper so if you use a store bought packet and it doesn't have salt & pepper, be sure to add to seasoning.
* Using the vegetables from a canned soup, genius shortcut! I used Amy's Organic Southwestern Vegetable soup. It had fire roasted vegetables which are so flavorful! It included corn, beans, green chili, potatoes, carrots, tomatoes, and spices. Feel free to use any type of vegetables you like in this recipe.
Homemade Taco Seasoning
1 Tbsp of chili powder
1/4 tsp of garlic powder
1/4 tsp of onion powder
1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp of paprika
1 1/2 tsp of ground cumin
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp of black pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Parchment (or grease) a large baking sheet.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the turkey & taco seasoning. Use a wooden spoon to crumble the turkey as it cooks and mix a few times to incorporate the spices. Let sauté until golden brown and no longer pink. Meanwhile, beat 1 large egg with a splash of water (this is your egg wash), set aside.
Once the turkey is done, remove from the heat and add your veggies. If you're using canned soup with veggies, just scoop the veggies out with a spoon, trying not to catch too much liquid. If you decide to use frozen veggies, heat with the turkey for a few minutes to defrost them.
Drizzle your baking sheet with olive oil (only if you used parchment) so your rolls get crispy. Begin filling your egg roll wraps with turkey/veggie mixture, sprinkle with cheese, and roll them up. The package should have directions! Mine even had pictures, which made life easier. You can google or youtube is necessary. :)
Before placing the oven, brush the rolls with the egg wash. This will make them golden brown, it's very important! Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown and crispy. I flipped mine about 7 minutes in so they could crisp on both sides.
Serve rolls with your favorite dipping sauce like avocado ranch, salsa, sour cream, or guacamole & enjoy!!
