How to Cook Tex Mex Egg Rolls

Use one of these 3 options to reheat your egg rolls:

AIR FRYER REHEATING METHOD

Air Fry the cooked egg rolls at 400°F for 5 minutes, flipping halfway through. The egg roll wrapper will get crispy on the outside.

OVEN REHEATING METHOD

Place cooked egg rolls directly on a sheet pan lined with tin foil OR on a sheet pan with a rack. Bake at 400°F for 5 minutes. Flip halfway through reheating. The egg roll wrapper will get crispy on the outside.

MICROWAVE REHEATING METHOD

Microwave in 15 second intervals until warmed through (note: this reheating method will not make the egg roll wrapper crispy)

Serve with the creamy avocado dip and enjoy!

My Favorite Way to Cook Egg Rolls

I love air frying my egg rolls, they are just as crispy and delicious as deep fried but without all the added oil!

My favorite Air Fryers that I highly recommend:

Cosori 5.8 Qt Air Fryer

Canadian Link

USA and All Other Countries Link

I have had my Cosori 5.8 Qt for 3 years and love it! I cook for a family of 5 with this basket style air fryer. This has an XL basket that is square (not round like most air fryers) so it has a large capacity which is great for 3-5 people.

Instant Vortex Pro

Canadian Link

USA and All Other Countries Link

I have had my Instant Vortex Pro for 2 years and love it! This is a tray style air fryer has 2 trays and has a rotating basket (great for fries) and rotisserie. The rotisserie feature is amazing, you can cook a whole chicken! With 2 trays this air fryer is good for 3-6 people.
