Southwestern Egg Roll Dip – Big Game Appetizers and Giveaway

Southwestern Egg Roll Dip

My recipe this time is a fun twist on a southwestern egg roll, have you had them before? They are so good!  They have all sorts of healthy veggies inside with a southwestern kick.

They are usually served with a creamy avocado ranch dressing too.  BUT they are a ton of work, making the filling, rolling all the egg rolls, cooking them, making the dip.   Who has time for that on game day? I thought why not just toss everything together in a bowl and make it a dip?  So here you have it, Southwestern Egg Roll Dip!  And instead of serving it with chips, why not fried wonton strips so you still get that good egg roll crunch.  Yup, way less work!

You don’t even have to feel too guilty about eating these because they are packed with veggies and chicken.  If you want to make them even more figure friendly (although I feel watching the super bowl really calls for stretchy pants and a vacation from the diet) you can bake the wonton strips in the oven and substitute the ranch dressing for some greek yogurt mixed with a packet of ranch dressing mix.

You can serve the dip in a big bowl with the wonton chips, or do what I did and put a little scoop on each chip.  Grab and go, perfect for serving a big crowd.

  1. Roughly how many wonton chips with the dip already on them does this make? Thanks!

    1. Hi Christine boy I don’t remember this post is a few years old and I haven’t made it in a while. I guess it would depend how much you put on each!

  2. this may seem like a stupid question, but do you cook the frozen corn? I was assuming yes, but the recipe doesn’t say and I want to make sure I make this right! I had it at someone’s house once and it was DELICIOUS!

  3. The recipes all look so yummy. Since I love mushrooms, I would bring the chili stuffed mushrooms for sure.
