Healthy Dinner Baked Southwest Egg Rolls

Healthy Dinner Baked Southwest Egg Rolls are amazing fried, just like they serve them at the restaurant, but I try to avoid frying my foods at home (probably because I hate having my whole house smell like what we ate for dinner).

I came across this recipe for Baked Southwest Egg Rolls – and they were right up to par. Plus, you cut down on calories by cutting out the frying! They perfect for an appetizer, or for your main dish!
