Southwest-Style Egg Rolls

We tried these the other night and just LOVED them! A new family favorite.

1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup chopped green onion
8 cups fresh baby spinach
1 cup frozen corn
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
6 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
1 (14 ounce) package egg roll wrappers
vegetable oil for frying

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in onions, and cook until tender. Stir in spinach, corn, black beans, and lime juice. Season with salt and cumin. Remove from heat, and stir in cheese.

Place 1/4 cup of filling in the center of each egg roll wrapper. Fold in the sides, and roll egg rolls; dampen the edges with a small amount of water to seal.

In a large heavy skillet, heat enough vegetable oil to cover egg rolls over medium-high heat. Working in batches, carefully place egg rolls in hot oil, and cook until golden brown. Remove to paper towels.

I will have to try these once I put my kitchen together. I still have dishes in boxes. :)
