Ingredients

  • 1 pound 93% lean ground beef
  • 16 egg roll wrappers I used Wing Hing brand
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 1 can Cilantro Lime Rotel
  • 1/2 can fat-free refried black beans
  • 1/2 packet Taco Seasoning I used Trader Joe's
  • 1 cup reduced-fat shredded Mexican Cheese
  • 1/2 cup whole kernel corn I used frozen
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp chopped cilantro optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat Air Fryer to 400 degrees.

  2. Spray a skillet with cooking spray on medium-high heat. Add the garlic and onions. Cook until fragrant.

  3. Add the ground beef, salt, pepper, and taco seasoning. Cook until browned while breaking the beef into smaller chunks.

  4. Add the Rotel, beans, and corn. Stir to ensure the mixture is combined.

  5. Lay the egg roll wrappers on a flat surface. Dip a cooking brush in water. Glaze each of the egg roll wrappers with the wet brush along the edges. This will soften the crust and make it easier to roll. 

  6. Load the mixture into each of the wrappers. For egg rolls of this size, double wrap them. This is optional. If you prefer not to double wrap, you will only need a total of 8 wrappers. Sprinkle each wrapper with cheese. 

  7. Fold the wrappers diagonally to close. Press firmly on the area with the filling, cup it to secure it in place. Fold in the left and right sides as triangles. Fold the final layer over the top to close. Use the cooking brush to wet the area and secure it in place. Spray each egg roll with olive oil.

  8. Load the egg rolls into the pan of the Air Fryer.

  9. Cook for 8 minutes. Flip the egg rolls. Cook for an additional 4 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro. Cool before serving.

Recipe Notes

Do not overstuff these! Use your judgment and do a couple of test rolls to gauge how much filling to use. If you overstuff, you can use toothpicks to secure.

Use your judgment to determine how long you should cook these in the Air Fryer. You will want to ensure both sides are golden brown. Cooking time may vary depending on the Air Fryer brand used.
