Egg rolls are known for being a fun finger food, an appetizer that tides you over until the main entree is served. That might be the case at a restaurant but homemade egg rolls are a special treat. Southwest Egg Rolls are packed full of colorful veggies with grilled chicken and bound together with melting pepper jack cheese. And since they are packed with so much goodness, I serve them straight out of the fry pan hot and crispy onto plates where they are quickly devoured.

August means it’s “Hatch” season. The first green chile have arrived but I haven’t found any roasters set up yet so I just picked up a few to get started. The first thing I wanted to make was some salsa so I went to the farmer’s market to pick up fresh tomatoes. But as usual I get caught up in all the fruits and veggies and picked up some zucchini and corn too. I had recently been drooling over a post from Kevin at “Closet Cooking” for Jalapeno Popper Corn Fritters which gave me the idea to make fritters with the Hatch green chile. I tweaked the recipe a bit and made a zucchini version too. I topped them with some Fire Roasted Salsa and Flamethrower Sauce. They were quite filling and really tasty, enough to make a whole meal out of them.

These yummy green chile quesadillas come straight from Kat’s kitchen. I was enlightened when one day she pulled out her flat iron griddle and layered green chile and cheese between tortillas and grilled them. I kept thinking why hadn’t I thought of that! It was so simple but one of the tastiest things on earth. I topped them with some chunky guacamole with sweet corn and flamethrower sauce. You may want to serve these on the side but we had them as our entire meal. Once you start you just can’t stop!
