delicious dish

Happy Monday, Darlings!

It's been quite a while since I posted a Delicious Dish recipe. Too long, I think!

I made these lovelies for a football game this weekend. Fortunately, they were more enjoyable than the game itself.

Baked Southwestern Egg Rolls
Yield: about 2 dozen egg rolls

2 cups frozen corn, thawed
1 (15 oz.) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (10 oz.) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
1 (4 oz.) can diced green chiles, drained
4 green onions, chopped
1 tsp. ground cumin
½ tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
1 package egg roll wrappers (about 24 total)

In a large bowl, combine everything but the egg roll wrappers. Mix well to blend. Lay an egg roll wrapper out on a work surface so that one of the corners is pointing toward you and place ¼ cup of the filling in the center. Fold the tip closest to you up over the filling, roll a bit, then take the points pointing outward and fold them in toward the center. Continue rolling into an egg roll shape until a small part of the remaining point is still free. Dip a finger in water or beaten egg and lightly brush on the edges of the free corner. Finish rolling and press to seal closed. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.
Preheat the oven to 425˚ F. Lightly oil a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place the sealed egg rolls on the baking sheet seam side down and spray the tops of the egg rolls with cooking spray. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until lightly brown, turning halfway through baking. Serve warm with salsa.

Metallic Print Barware, Gold, Set of 4
* I love this lion costume for Eleanor's first Halloween! But $50 for a baby costume? Have mercy!

* Putting this barware in a cabinet would be a crime. It's ready to mingle!

* Anyone would love getting these random notes of appreciation.

* Is anyone else loving this cool snap?

* These ankle boots go with everything!
