Appetizer egg rolls are an awesome game day snack or party food you can prepare ahead of time then fry up when you’re ready to enjoy them. We’re back to one of my favorite restaurants today with another Cheesecake Factory Copycat recipe (you can see all the Cheesecake Factory copycats here). This recipe is a favorite of ours like our other two favorites, Cheesecake Factory Chicken Madeira and Cheesecake Factory Spicy Cashew Chicken.

Why make these egg rolls at home?

When you order egg rolls from your local restaurant or even Chinese restaurants, in the time it takes for them to arrive at your home is the time in which they are best enjoyed. By the time they are delivered to you, they’ve already begun to get soggy, cold and the cheese inside is already starting to harden.

Egg rolls are best enjoyed within minutes of them being fried.

What is in the creamy avocado sauce?

The creamy avocado sauce is a mixture of cream cheese, sour cream, cilantro and avocados. If you’d like a bit of a kick you can add in a pinch of cayenne or 1/2 a jalapeno.

Baked Tex Mex Egg Rolls:

If you’d like to bake the egg rolls instead of frying then, spray the egg rolls with canola oil spray before baking. Bake at 425 degrees for 18-20 minutes.

Can you prep the tex mex egg rolls ahead of time:

You can either fill and roll the egg rolls and freeze them before cooking or you can make the filling ahead of time and roll and fry them when you’re ready to serve.

Tools Used in this Tex Mex Egg Rolls:
Oil Thermometer: You’re looking for 350 degrees on your oil here. Everything inside is cooked but you want a good golden brown exterior and some melty cheese action inside.
Tongs: I normally use the pig tail flipper for frying but because this has a filling to protect definitely go with tongs here. Slotted spoons or spatulas invite oil burns if the egg rolls fall back in (trust me on this one).
Cooling rack: Don’t cool on napkins or paper towels, they will cause steam to build up and a soggy half of your egg roll!

  1. This is a family favorite!! We add a little more spices because we love hot stuff! I made these for my daughters grad party a year ago. We made 500 in a couple of settings. We just let them cool after frying then put them in a single layer inside a large freezer bag. We were able to stack about 5 bags high and had no trouble with them breaking. We did let the bottom bags freeze before we stacked more on top. At the party, we just reheated in the ovens and served with several different dipping sauces including the one here. I think my son wants the same thing for his party this spring!

  2. I veganized these by using a vegan chick’n and cheese and vegan sour cream for the avocado dipping sauce. I also cooked them in the air fryer like another reviewer and these were DELICIOUS! I loved them at Cheesecake Factory when I ate meat and these are a great substitute! Thanks for sharing!

  3. These are simply AMAZING! Made them for a card night with the ladies. Ended up leaving the leftovers and my niece (who hates vegetables) LOVES these and asks me to make them for her all the time. We even did it together (so for anyone with littles, this is a good “together” activity).

    I have added a couple extras to mine as I love a PUNCH of flavor to everything I eat – added a couple heaping T of salsa (not to make it too wet, but to add more moisture and flavor) – also doubled up on the spices.

    Thank you for sharing this “KEEPER” recipe!

  4. Do you use chopped rotisserie chicken? Or do you just boil or bake it and then chop before adding it with the other ingredients on high heat for a minute? Plan on making these tonight!
