A New Favorite

Mexican Eggrolls!

I know, I know ... I too was skeptical at first, but not anymore! They're basically a taco inside an eggroll! They're quick and easy and don't make a mess when you eat them!

Here's how to make them...

1lb Hamburger Meat
1 Pkg Taco Seasoning
Chopped Onion (however much you want in the eggrolls)
Shredded Cheese (however much you want in the eggrolls)
Shredded Lettuce
Sour Cream
Salsa or Taco Sauce
2 pkgs of Egg Roll Wrappers (usually in the organic/health food section or at health food stores)
1 egg to seal the egg roll wrappers
Oil for frying

Brown the hamburger and mix with the Taco Seasoning (follow directions on package)
Mix in the cheese and onion (or any other taco toppings that you like - green chilis, peppers, etc)

Take an egg roll wrapper and place approx 1 tbsp of taco meat/mix in the wrapper
Follow egg roll wrapper directions to fold
Then take a second wrapper and wrap it around the first, seal with egg (this will ensure that it doesn't make a mess!)
Fry the egg roll in the oil until both sides are brown/somewhat crispy

To serve: Place on a bed of lettuce and top with sour cream and salsa/taco sauce - or dip in sour cream and salsa/taco sauce

Typically 1-1.5lb of meat will make 15-18 egg rolls depending on how much meat is placed in each egg roll.

November has arrived! The clocks change tonight, which means it will be getting dark much earlier than during the summer months.

We're back to My First Look Curriculum beginning this weekend. During this month we'll be learning about Creation and all that God has made!

How have you shown love this week?
