Tex Mex Egg Rolls
Updated: Apr 21, 2021
These Tex Mex Egg Rolls are so delicious and so easy to make! Inspired by the Tex Mex egg rolls at The Cheesecake Factory. I air fried them and they turned out delicious and just as good as deep frying.
For anyone who celebrates Ramadan these are great to make ahead and freeze! These egg rolls are so versatile you can change the filling in so many ways. You can use beef instead of chicken or make them veggie, you can switch up the cheese, or you can switch out the wrapper for a spring roll wrapper if you prefer.
