How to Make Cheesecake Factory Avocado Egg Rolls

There are 3 steps for making them:

  1. Assemble the egg rolls: Combine ripe avocados, tomato and red onion with lime juice and cilantro in a mixing bowl. Then spoon onto an egg roll wrapper and wrap tightly, repeating until you’ve used up the filling.

2. Deep Frying – Add 1-inch of vegetable oil to a skillet and heat to 400°F (you can also use a deep fryer). When the oil is hot, simply add one egg roll to fry for 1-2 minutes until golden and remove to a paper towel lined plate.

3. Make the Dipping Sauce – While the egg rolls are cooling, you can quickly make the dipping sauce by combining cilantro, lime juice, sour cream, jalapeno, may and garlic in a food processor. Pulse or puree for about 5 seconds until creamy.

Tips for Making Avocado Egg Rolls

  • Selecting ripe avocados is important, i.e. you want them to give slightly to pressure without being mushy.
  • Get your equipment ready before deep frying: a paper towel-lined plate or cooling rack, a deep fry thermometer, a mesh strainer or slotted spoon.
  • Roll the avocado egg rolls tightly, taking care not to add too much filling. A tablespoonful is usually enough.
  • Plan to serve shortly after deep frying. Let them cool for 2-3 minutes and serve warm with the dipping sauce.

  • 3 medium avocados, peeled and pitted, see note
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, minced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • 2 cups vegetable oil, for frying
  • 10 large egg roll wrappers
