Avocado Egg Rolls & Creamy Verde Sauce [Watch Video]

Ingredients
4 avocados, cubed
½ red onion, diced
1 jalapeno pepper, minced
3 tbsp cilantro, chopped
4 oz. sun-dried tomatoes in oil, julienned
1 tsp garlic powder
salt, pepper to taste
egg roll wrappers
1 egg, beaten (for sealing egg rolls)
vegetable oil, for frying
Creamy verde sauce, recipe follows

Directions
1. Combine avocados, red onion, jalapeno, cilantro, sun-dried tomatoes, and seasonings in bowl, and mix.

2. Fill the egg roll wrappers. Lay a wrapper on your cutting board with one corner facing you. Then, place a spoonful of the filling along the center. Fold corner closest to you over the filling, then fold over the left and right corners before rolling to complete the egg roll. Brush a little bit of the egg on the last corner to seal the egg roll. Repeat until filling is gone.

3. In a heavy-bottomed pot or pan, add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan. When oil is hot, gently add egg rolls and fry, turning until all sides are golden-brown. To drain, place egg rolls on a paper grocery bag.

4. To serve, slice egg rolls in half and serve with creamy verde sauce.
