I love egg rolls. I also love all things Tex-Mex. Living here in Texas, it’s kind of a prerequisite. Do you know what else I love? Combining different kinds of cuisine. That’s why I love making these avocado egg rolls. They’re a delicious combination of two of my favorite kinds of foods – Asian and Tex-Mex. These delicious egg rolls are perfect for lunches, dinners, afternoons snacks, or to bring to your next potluck or get-together. Being so flavorful and so easy to make, they’re really the perfect recipe, especially if you love Mexican food, Asian food, or both!
Unlike some of the recipes I’ve been sharing lately, this is not one that I’ve been making for years. In fact, I only started making it. However, it passed the ultimate test for making an appearance on the blog. My family devoured them when I made them. I made a batch of these and they were gone by the end of the evening. That’s when I knew they were not only a winner, but they were blog-worthy. So here they are!

Avocado Egg Rolls Tips and Variations
This is an extremely simple recipe to make, but I still have a couple of tips to help make them the best they can be. I also have some great variations that I think you’ll love.
- Don’t go overboard when moistening your egg roll edges to seal them. You want them to be damp enough to stick, not waterlogged and soggy.
- Don’t crowd your pan or skillet when frying the egg rolls. Too many egg rolls at once in the oil will lower the temperature and cause the egg rolls to cook too slowly and get greasy.
- Try adding ground beef, chorizo, or your favorite ground sausage.
- For extra spicy egg rolls, try adding diced jalapeno.
- Dip your egg rolls in salsa, taco sauce, or sour cream for even more flavor.
How to Pick the Perfect Avocado
The perfect avocado should be a deep, dark color. Bright green avocados are not ripe. In addition, when you hold the avocado in your hand and gently squeeze it, it should yield to the pressure somewhat without feeling mushy. If the avocado really gives when you squeeze, it’s overripe.
How to Ripen an Avocado
Unlike other fruits, avocados don’t ripen on the tree. Instead, they ripen or soften after they’ve been harvested. If you need to speed up the ripening process, place your avocado in a paper bag with an apple or banana for 2 to 3 days until it reaches the color and firmness described above.
How to Wrap an Egg Roll
Wrapping an egg roll is easier than you might think. If you do it one time, you’ll practically be a master. That’s how simple it is.
- Lay out the egg roll wrapper with a corner toward you so it looks like a diamond.
- Place the filling on the lower third of the wrapper just above the bottom corner.
- Roll the corner closest to you over the filling once, tucking it under the filling.
- Gently press down on each side of the filling to flatten the wrapper.
- Fold the left and right sides of the wrapper toward the middle.
- Brush egg wash or moisten the remaining wrapper with water.
- Roll the egg roll forward, wrapping the remaining wrapper around itself.
