Avocado Cream Sauce

1 large, ripe avocado
1/2 lime, juiced
1/4 t salt
1/8 t pepper
1 t garlic powder
1/4 c cream

Place all the ingredients in a medium bowl and mix with a hand blender until smooth. Taste for seasoning, then place in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Egg Rolls

1 pkg egg roll wrappers
1 1b ground lean ground beef
2 T olive oil
1/2 t salt
1/2 t ground black pepper
1 onion, chopped
1/4 c jalapeno, diced
1 T fresh garlic, diced
1 T cumin
1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 t onion powder
1 T chili powder
3 T canned diced green chilies
3/4 c shredded monterey jack cheese
2 c shredded lettuce
vegetable oil for frying

Brown the ground beef in a large skillet with the olive oil, breaking up into small pieces as it cooks. Season with salt and pepper then let cook for 10 min until all the pink is gone. Drain any liquid that is left in the pan. Next add in the onion, garlic and jalapeno to the meat and cook for 8 – 10 min until the onions are softened. Add the seasonings and the green chilies to the meat filling, stir to combine then let cool for a few min. After the meat filling has cooled, add the shredded jack cheese over the top and stir to blend the filling together well. Fill a large pot half-way with oil and place over medium-high heat until it reaches 350 F. While the oil is heating up, you can wrap your egg rolls. Take 1 egg roll wrapper and place it on a cutting board. Put 2 T meat filling in a strip on one side of the wrapper. Add some shredded lettuce to cover the meat. Roll over 2 times, then wet the 2 sides of the wrapper and fold it over towards the center of the egg roll. Continue to roll the egg roll to the end, sealing with water on the edge. Repeat with all the wrappers until you run out of filling. When the oil comes to temp add in 5 – 6 egg rolls at a time, frying for about 3 min until golden brown. Remove to a paper towel lined baking sheet and repeat with remaining egg rolls. Makes about 10 – 12.
