15 Minute Taco Egg Rolls | It Is A Keeper

Put a Mexican spin on a Chinese favorite in just 15 minutes.  These 15 Minute Taco Egg Rolls are quick and easy!

3 Taco Egg Rolls on a white table

 What’s your favorite kind of food? Me, I have lots! Really, almost any food is my favorite food. But I do have a hankering for Chinese food more often than any others. So what do you do when you’re feeling one thing and your spouse or kids are wanting something totally different? You give in and give them what they want? That very thing happened to us a few weeks ago and I did what any good mom would do… I combined the two!9 Taco Egg Rolls on a white plate with sour cream in a small bowl in the middle.

This wasn’t the first time I’d combined tacos with other foods. You see my boys really like tacos. But they also really, REALLY like pizza. So last year I combined the two into one glorious meal! It was so good we’ve had it almost every month since. The only problem was this time I wasn’t craving pizza. I was really craving some chicken egg rolls from Panda Express. But because I’d rather spend money on gifts this time of year than eating out (and because it was snowing) I opted to stay in for dinner. The first time I mixed tacos with another food it worked out great so I decided to try it again.

One Taco Egg Rolls cut in half.

These beauties were so easy to make and really filling too! They work great as appetizers but also as a main dish. Any food you can eat with your hands is a winner in my kids’ book and this one was no different. I love how the cheesy taco meat blends so well with the crunchy egg roll crust. I got 10 egg rolls out of 1 pound of ground beef and they were packed full of cheese and meat. You could probably get 15-20 or more if you use 1 Tbsp of taco meat instead of 2 Tbsp.

I made my egg rolls pretty basic with just meat and cheese but you could add whatever taco dressings you like; tomatoes, lettuce, onions. You can also dip them in guacamole, salsa, sour cream or just eat them plain!

Have you ever combined two foods into one dish before? How did it turn out?
