Southwestern Crispy Egg Rolls with Wholly Guacamole


I home-make a lot of things.  Like everything.  I mean, I do Homemade Vanilla Syrup and Homemade Chocolate Sauce, for goodness sake!  There is very little in this world that I would prefer to buy store-bought over home-made.  Guacamole is one of my very, very few exceptions.  And not just any store-bought guacamole (because there are some really gross ones out there … trust me, I’ve made that mistake a time or two before!) … but WHOLLY GUACAMOLE (Batman)!!!

Here’s the truth of it – Yes, Wholly Guacamole is sponsoring this post, BUT that is not the reason I’m about to say some really nice things about them … it is actually the other way around.  I’ve been a huge fan of Wholly Guacamole for YEARS!! So anytime they offer up an opportunity for me to share the love, I jump on it!  We love Wholly Guacamole because it tastes great, comes in tons of varieties, is packaged perfectly for snacks/family meals/storage, and it is very reasonably priced (there are almost always coupons too)!!

Wholly Guacamole

Personally, we buy the bulk-sized packages from Costco & freeze them.  There are 4 family-sized portions in each box & that lasts us about a month (give or take).  It is so easy to just pull out a package, put it in the fridge, & have an instant flavor-kick to any meal (guac hamburgers, or BLTGuac sandwiches) or appetizer for last-minute guests!!  We also buy the snack-sized portions & often put those in my 1st grader’s lunch (she LOVES guac).  Wholly Guacamole helps make our favorite meals extra-easy, too – like our beloved Chicken Tostadas with Guacamole & Pico de Gallo.  Seriously, we’re card-carrying, kool-aid drinking, guac-stalking lovers of Wholly Guacamole!!

Each year, Wholly Guacamole celebrates something called HOMEGATING – it is the art of tailgating, at home! They have a whole site devoted to it – with recipes, videos, decorating tips, coupons, & fun football info!  They’ve asked me to help highlight the awesome-ness of this resource by posting one of their recipes here on my blog!  They have lots of great options, so be sure to visit the full site for more delicious recipes!!  To give you a taste, I was happy to “steal” this version of Southwestern Crispy Egg Rolls by Nathan Lippy!

Southwestern Crispy Egg Rolls

Kick up your next HOMEGATING gathering with these Southwestern Crispy Egg Rolls with Wholly Guacamole Avocado Ranch and a Thai Chili dipping sauce.


    For the Egg Rolls:
  • 1/2 c. White Onion, chopped
  • 1/2 c Shiitake Mushroom, sliced
  • 1/3 c Corn, cooked (canned or frozen is fine)
  • 1/3 c Black Beans, cooked (canned is fine)
  • 2 tsp Garlic. minced
  • 3 tsp ground Cumin
  • 2 tsp ground Coriander
  • 1/2 tbsp Chili Powder
  • 1 tsp smoked Chipotle Powder
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 Wholly Guacamole® Avocado Ranch Snack Pack
  • 1 pkg Egg Roll Wrappers
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 quart Vegetable Oil, for frying
  • For the Dipping Sauce:
  • 1/2 c Thai Chili sauce
  • 2 tbsp Hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp Ponzu sauce
  • Juice of half of a Lime
  • 2 tsp Sesame Oil


    For the Egg Rolls:
  1. Heat vegetable oil in a large stock pot over medium heat, until it reaches 365 degrees.
  2. In the meantime, in a large saute pan, heat a small amount of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onions & mushrooms; cook for 3 minutes. Add corn, black beans, garlic, spices, lime juice, & pinch of salt/pepper. Reduce heat to low & cook an additional 5 minutes, until everything is heated through.
  3. Using one egg roll wrapper at a time, place a small spoonful of vegetable mixture in the center of the wrapper along with 1/2 tbsp of Wholly Guacamole Avocado Ranch.
  4. To roll the egg roll, turn it so you're looking at a diamond shape & pull the bottom point towards the center (about half way, covering the filling), then pull each of the side points (left & right) towards the center, laying them each flat. Finally, starting at the bottom, roll the whole thing upwards. Dab your finger in some water & run it over the inside of the final point before pressing it down to seal the whole thing. Your final product should look like a tightly wrapped mini-burrito (or egg roll). Repeat until all of the egg rolls are wrapped.
  5. Carefully add rolls to the hot oil. Cook for 3-5 minutes or until the egg rolls are golden and crispy. You may need to carefully flip them in the oil (with a spoon or tongs) half way through.
  6. Remove rolls from oil with slotted spoon or tongs & drain on paper towels. Repeat until all of the rolls are fried.
  7. Slice, at an angle, down the center & serve warm with the dipping sauce on the side (recipe below).
  8. For the dipping sauce:
  9. In a medium bowl, combine all dipping sauce ingredients & whisk with a fork until well incorporated. Cover & chill in the fridge until you're ready to serve the egg rolls.
