An Epic Appetizer Or Dinner Recipe!

Taco Egg Rolls? Why not. Tacos seem to be everywhere, taco lasagna, taco pizza, taco soup…so let’s make some Taco Egg Rolls with Avocado Cream Sauce!

Yes, these have a few steps to them…and yes, they are fried. But they’re worth the effort if you’re up to the challenge. This beef filled, taco seasoned egg roll recipe is sure to become one of your family favorites. Serve these egg rolls instead of tacos on taco Tuesday, or for appetizers at your next party!

How To Make These Taco Egg Rolls

Start by making the avocado cream sauce. Add an avocado, lime juice, garlic powder, salt and pepper and a little cream to a blender and blend until smooth.

Next get a large skillet and start browning up the ground beef, onions, garlic and a jalapeño. Then add in a few seasonings and stir in some Pepper jack or Monterey jack cheese, depending on how spicy you want the filling to be.

Get out some egg roll wrappers and place a some of the beef filling onto the long side of the wrapper. Add shredded lettuce on top and get ready to roll…

Follow the photo here for tips on rolling the egg rolls. Roll a few times to seal in the filling, then tuck in the sides to keep the filling inside and keep rolling.

Now it’s time for the deep fry! Fry these egg rolls in a pot filled halfway with oil (so the oil doesn’t boil over) for about 3-4 minutes until crispy. You can fry the egg rolls a few at a time depending on how big your pot is.

You can also make these Taco Egg Rolls in an air fryer if you have one. We just recently purchased an air fryer and we’ve been testing all kinds of recipes, they work out pretty well and save a ton of calories.

These egg rolls only take a couple of minutes to fry up to a nice golden brown. When they’re done, drain them onto a paper towel lined baking sheet to cool.

You could serve these up for an appetizer or a fun dinner with the kids. So, what do you think? Are these Taco Egg Rolls Chinese food or Mexican food? I say who cares…either way they’ll go great with a nice, cold beer served alongside!

These Taco Egg Rolls with Avocado Cream Sauce are going to be the hit at your next party! These crispy homemade egg rolls are the perfect party food appetizer.



Avocado Cream Sauce:

  • 1 large, ripe avocado
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup cream

For the Egg Rolls:

  • 1 package egg roll wrappers
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh black pepper
  • 1/3 cup diced onion
  • 2 teaspoons chopped garlic
  • 1/2 jalapeño pepper, diced fine
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 3/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (or Pepper Jack)
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce
  • Canola or vegetable oil for frying


  1. Start by making the avocado cream sauce. Place all the ingredients in a blende and blend until smooth. Taste for seasonings, then cover and place in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  2. Add the olive oil to a skillet and brown the beef, breaking up into small pieces as it cooks. Season with salt and pepper and taco seasoning and then let cook for 8-10 minutes until all the pink is gone. Drain any liquid that is left in the pan.
  3. Next add the onion, garlic and jalapeño to the meat and cook for 4-5 minutes until the onions are softened. Stir in the cheese and set aside.
  4. Fill a large pot half-way with oil and place over medium-high heat until it reaches 350 degrees. While the oil is heating up, you can wrap the egg rolls.
  5. Take an egg roll wrapper and place it on a cutting board. Put about 3 tablespoons of the meat filling in a strip on one side of the wrapper. Add some shredded lettuce to cover the meat, then roll up the egg roll, folding in the edges. Seal with egg wash and repeat with the remaining egg rolls. Check out the pictures in the post for reference.
  6. When the oil comes to temperature, add in 3-4 egg rolls at a time, depending on the size of your pot. Fry the egg rolls for about 3 minutes until golden brown. Remove to a paper towel lined baking sheet and repeat with remaining egg rolls.
  7. Serve with the avocado cream sauce for dipping.

    if i’m making these as an appetizer for 12 people, would you double the recipe? or are there enough – approx. how many egg rolls does this make? thanks! :)

  2. Dan

    You should get about 10 egg rolls, depending on how you fill them- but I think it’s fine for apps for 12. They’re big so you could cut them in half and have at least 20. Have fun!

    I did these a little differently by using prepackaged seasoning and adding avocado instead of lettuce. My 1 lbs. of ground beef made 12. They were amazing and a huge hit. Thanks for the idea.

    1. Dan

      I just update the recipe card, it gets added on top of the beef filling before you roll them up. You can see where in the pictures too! Thank you!

    Egg roll wrappers? I’ve never seen these. I’m in Australia, would we even have them here, whats the ingredients of the egg wrappers, other than egg?

  6. Shay

    We love these! I’ve made them countless times and we never get tired of them! But strange question…did the recipe change or get updated at some point? I thought I recall this listing various spices for the taco seasoning as opposed to a taco seasoning packet? Also, the directions say to add the garlic bit it’s not in the ingredients list.

    1. Dan

      You’re right Shay! We changed this recipe up a little to make it easier, essentially the spices were for a homemade taco seasoning. And in doing that we must have left the chopped garlic off the ingredient list so we added that back on! And thank you for your comment, we really appreciate it!
