Inspiration always comes to me in the form of cravings. I was really craving egg rolls, and not in the “I’ll have an egg roll on the side” kind of way, but in the “I’ll take a dozen egg rolls to go. No, I would not like to order an entrée. Load me up with some sweet and sour, please” kind of way. Unfortunately, we don’t even have a Chinese restaurant in town. So how was I ever going to get a whole plate of egg rolls?
Deconstructed Egg Roll Nachos!
Of course. It seems so obvious now. Egg roll filling, piled high on top of wonton chips, with some fresh red pepper, jalapeño , sweet and sour sauce, and just a drizzle of spicy mustard. Literally, a whole plate of egg roll. It was spectacular!
Egg roll nachos are a must make weekend meal or fun appetizer for game day. You can easily make the chips and toppings ahead of time and just heat and serve for guests. Give these a try, and the next time you crave an egg roll; you will not be calling for take out.
