  • Ready In

  1. Heat 1/2 inch of oil in a large skillet, or preheat a deep-fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Insert a piece of cheese into each chile. Place a stuffed chile diagonally across the egg roll wrapper. Moisten all four sides of the wrapper with water. Fold the sides in and gently press to seal the ends. Starting at the bottom fold the point up and gently press around the chili. Roll up and seal the edges.
  3. Fry the rolls in the hot oil until golden brown on all sides, about 3 minutes. When the first side in nice and brown gently flip over and brown the other side. Work in small batches so the egg rolls don't touch while frying. Remove from the oil to drain on paper towels. Serve warm.


  • Cook's Note
  • It is important to not puncture the wrappers prior to or during frying or the filling will leak.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

These were sooooo good! I couldn't find wonton wrappers so ended up making them. I baked them in a 350 oven until golden. YUM!! Thanks Baking Nana!

This is not something I will make again, It sounded like a nice twist to the Chilie reino, Not my thing, my family wasn't impressed either.
