Southwestern Egg Rolls with Avocado Cream Sauce

These were SO good! My sister has vowed to NEVER make them again because she could not stop eating them. They were that good. We would eat them hot, cold (fresh out of the refrigerator), etc... We even ate the filling plain, over shredded lettuce, etc... I cannot put into words how much we LOVED this recipe. TASTY!

Ingredients for the Egg Rolls
2 cups frozen corn, thawed (I used canned corn)
1-15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
1-9 oz package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry with paper towel
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese
1-7oz can diced green chiles, drained
4 green onions, finely chopped
1-2 pound chicken breasts, diced, cooked, and seasoned with salt and pepper
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp salt (or more if desired)
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 package of egg roll or wonton wrappers

Directions for the Egg Rolls
1. Preheat oven to 425F. Line 2 baking sheets with aluminum foil and spray lightly with cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl mix together corn, beans, spinach, cheese, chiles, onions, cumin, chili powder, salt and cayenne pepper. Using a small spoon, scoop a small amount of filling onto the wrapper. Starting at a corner, carefully start to roll the wrapper. When it’s slightly rolled, tuck in the two side and continue rolling to the last point. Wet your finger with water and dab a bit on the corner to seal the egg roll. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling, placing them slightly apart on the baking sheet.
3. Lightly spray the tops of the egg rolls with cooking spray and bake for 15 minutes, flipping them at least once during baking.

Directions for the Avocado Ranch:
3/8 cup mayonnaise
3/8 cup sour cream
3 Tbs buttermilk
1/2 Tbs olive oil
1/2 Tbs lemon juice
1/2 green onion, chopped
1/4 tsp salt
1 avocado, peeled and pitted (our avocados were too hard so I used a bag of the guacamole type stuff you find in the refrigerator section of your grocery store)

Directions for the Avocado Ranch
1. Place all ingredients in a blender and pulse until smooth. Use immediately.
