    Default Bennigan's Southwest Eggrolls

    Does anyone have the recipe for these? We used to get them when we would go out but they closed the Bennigans by us. I miss them so much. They also had some kind of sweet sauce to dip them in. Not sure what all was in it but i know it had pineapple in it. I could sure go for some of those right now.

    1 cup cooked, seasoned yellow rice
    1 (10 or 12 ounce) package frozen whole kernnel corn
    1 pablano pepper diced

    12 ounces shredded pepper jack cheese
    1 package egg roll wrappers

    Thaw and saute corn until lightly brown. (I use butter but any oil will do.)

    Add all diced vegetables and dry seasonings to corn and saute about 5 more minutes. Chill in refrigerator.

    Drain beans.

    After rice mixture is cold, add beans, Thai chili sauce, and shredded cheese.

    Mix cornstarch and water together and use to seal edges of egg roll wrappers. (Just brush the edges of the top 2 sides of the diamond. See directions on egg roll wrapper if you do not know how to roll them.)

    Spoon about 3 tablespoons of mixture into each egg roll wrapper.

    Deep-fry until desired browness and serve.


    1 cup mayonnaise
    4 Tablespoons El Paso Chile Company Fire Roasted Tomato Salsa
    1 (8 1/4 oz.) can crushed pineapple, drained (juice reserved)
    2 tablespoons. pineapple juice
    2 1/2 tablespoons. sugar

    Combine all ingredients and mix on medium speed for 2 minutes. Chill in refrigerator for an hour.

    Serve as dipping sauce with southwest eggrolls.

    Addicting Southwestern Egg rolls. People ask me to make these all the time when we are having a get together. I make a double batch at least and freeze any extra if there are ever any. I do not always freeze the egg rolls before I fry them. I serve them with Bennigan's pineapple dipping sauce.
