  1. Make the egg roll wrappers, click HERE for the recipe and instructions.

  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the onion, bell peppers, and zucchini and spread evenly in the pan.
  3. Cook until the vegetables soften and begin to brown, approximately 7 minutes.
  4. Add the 2 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp smoked paprika, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp dried oregano, and salt and pepper to taste, stir to fully combine. Cook for 2 minutes.
  5. Add 1 tbsp of the vegetable filling to the center of an egg roll wrapper.
  6. Top with a liberal dollop of WHOLLY® GUACAMOLE Spicy Guacamole.
  7. Fold one side of the wrapper over, then the other side, then the third side and roll to close the roll.
  8. Brush the roll with a light layer of egg wash.
  9. Heat the vegetable oil on high heat until it reaches 325°F (163°C) and add the egg rolls, making sure they don’t touch. SEE NOTE
  10. Fry for approximately 2 minutes, or until golden brown. Flip and fry another 2 minutes, or until the entire egg roll is golden brown.
  11. Remove and place on a plate lined with paper towel to absorb the excess oil. Place on a baking sheet in a warm oven to keep crisp until ready to serve.
  12. For the Dipping Sauce
  13. Put the 1 cup WHOLLY® GUACAMOLE Classic Guacamole, ¼ cup water, juice from 1 large lime, and 1 tbsp white wine vinegar in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
  14. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes


  • The oil needs to be 325°F before you add the egg rolls. If it’s not hot enough the rolls will be soggy and greasy, not crispy and light.
  • You’ll need to fry these in batches, so make sure there’s room between the rolls when frying so they don’t stick together.
  • To Freeze
  • Freeze the fried egg rolls on a platter for 10 minutes and then place in a freezer safe container for up to 3 months.
  • To reheat, place the egg rolls on a baking sheet and bake in a 350°F (176°C) oven for approximately 20 minutes, or until crispy and heated through to the center.
