Hello, everybody and welcome to restaurant recipe, recreations a channel dedicated to teaching you how to create your favorite signature dishes from the most popular restaurants, and in this episode I'm going to be teaching you how to recreate the southwest egg rolls from chili's bar and grill, and this video recipe also happens to be a viewer request from madam zeiland.
So, madam silent, I hope you enjoy the video and by the way, if you have a restaurant or a recipe that you would like me to feature, go ahead and drop it in the comments section below.
I promise I'll take a look at it, but make sure that you hit the subscribe button and the notification bell so that when your episode comes up, you'll be notified.
So let me tell you everything that you're going to need for these southwest egg rolls so that you can get all of your ingredients ready before we get into the recipe making process.
Now chili's refers to these as egg rolls, I think, probably because they're shaped like an egg roll, but they're not really an egg roll in the traditional sense in that they're not made with egg roll wrappers instead they're made with flour tortilla and the size that I'm using here for this recipe are the fajita sized ones which are about six and a half to seven inches in diameter.
You're also going to need a whole roasted chicken.
In many grocery stores, you can purchase an already roasted chicken, but I prefer to roast my own chicken.
So if you prefer to roast your own chicken like I do, this is about a three and a half to four pound chicken that I roasted last evening, just to give it a chance to cool, and it was roasted in the oven at 375 for about an hour and 15 minutes.
Of course, with just some light seasoning.
I brush it with a little bit of olive oil, some salt and cracked, black pepper and for the rest of the egg roll filling you're going to need frozen, spinach you're going to need canned corn.
I like to use canned corn as opposed to fresh or frozen corn in this recipe, because I, like the consistency better you're, also going to need a can of black beans, you're going to need green onion, monterey, jack cheese, a fresh red, pepper, you're, going to need jalapeno, pepper, a little bit of cumin a little bit of chili powder and a little bit of taco seasoning, and then I'll show you how to make the dipping sauce at the end and what you'll need for that is.
Buttermilk you'll need a packet of hidden valley, ranch dressing, a very soft avocado you'll need mayonnaise and just a little bit of diced tomato and then for the deep frying you're, also going to need canola oil and whatever it is that you like to deep fry in now, you're, either going to need a very, very deep skillet or if you're like me, you prefer to do your deep frying in a wok.
The reason I like to do deep frying in my wok is because I think that the wok gets to the highest temperature and the depth of the wok also has a tendency to kind of contain some of the mess that happens with deep frying, all right, my friends.
So let's go ahead and get started with the southwest egg rolls from chili's bar and grill.
So the first thing that we want to do is to pull and chop our fresh roasted chicken.
What I'm doing is just taking off all of the skin and discarding the skin and, of course, the bones as well.
Obviously, whenever I roast a chicken at home, which is very often actually, I always like to save all the bones and all of the the carcass and the skin and everything because I always end up making my own chicken stock, I love homemade chicken stock.
It just has so much more flavor, so I'm taking off the skin and putting it into a separate container for my chicken stock for later and then, of course, all of the bones as well, and then only setting aside the white and the dark meat and we'll go ahead and chop that down further in a bit, and then you just want to take all of the larger pieces from your pulled chicken and chop it down.
I'm using only the green parts of the scallion and you'll want a half of a cup onto the red, pepper, of course, you're going to use one whole red pepper.
You want your red pepper in a quarter, inch dice or smaller, and now one large jalapeno, fresh seeds stems and ribs removed, and you want this jalapeno to be minced.
However, if spicy is not your thing and you want to leave the jalapeno out entirely feel free to do that.
If spicy is your thing like me and you want to kick it up, then add two jalapenos.
Now we're going to grate eight ounces of monterey jack cheese.
Now we need to saute all of our egg roll ingredients together.
So, on a medium high heat, add a little bit of olive oil to the bottom of your pan.
Once the oil is hot enough, add the jalapeno, pepper, the red pepper and the scallions and we're going to saute those until softened once the peppers have softened, add the chopped white and dark meat.
Now we're going to add one can or 15 ounces of the canned corn, one can or 15 ounces of black beans that have been drained and rinsed a nine ounce package of frozen spinach that has been squeezed very, very dry.
All of the liquid and water has been squeezed out of the spinach.
You can see how kind of dry and crumbly it is.
That's what you're, looking for so one nine ounce package of frozen spinach, a half, a teaspoon of cumin, a half, a teaspoon of chili powder and a half of a teaspoon of taco seasoning, give that a nice stir and make sure that all of the ingredients are incorporated and really you can use this filling for any number of things you don't have to stop at just the egg rolls this would be a fantastic taco or burrito filling now.
Let's add two pinches of salt and the eight ounces of shredded monterey, jack, cheese and now on a low heat mix.
All of these ingredients, together until the cheese is slightly melted and all of the ingredients are well incorporated and now the fun part, let's roll these egg rolls.
It might be helpful if you got yourself some toothpicks just to keep these together.
Now, let's start with your fajita size, 7 inch, flour tortilla, put about 2 tablespoons of the filling into the center, don't overcrowd the tortilla with too much filling, because then you'll have a hard time getting the ends to stay closed and it'll all squeeze out, which is you don't want that so tuck in the sides bring the one side up continue to tuck in the sides and then close it on the ends with two toothpicks now, whatever it is that you're using to fry these egg rolls in whether it's a very, very deep saute, pan a stock pot or, in my case, a wok.
You want to make sure that you have about three inches of canola oil in the bottom and your canola oil needs to come up to 355 degrees.
When you put a thermometer into the oil, you don't want to touch all the way down to the bottom of the pan, because what you'll be doing is you'll be taking the temperature of the pan, which is going to be hotter than the oil.
You just want to make sure that the tip of the thermometer is about halfway down into the oil that way you're.
Getting a true and honest, read on the temperature of your oil, so go ahead and put the egg rolls into the fry oil.
Don't overcrowd, depending on the size of what you're frying in just do about three or four.
At a time I'm going to stick with three once the egg rolls are a nice crispy golden brown place them on a rack to drain to make the avocado ranch dipping sauce for these egg rolls start with either a blender or your food processor and add one half of a cup of mayonnaise.
If you were to ask my opinion, dupes mayonnaise is the only way to go.
I know people are kind of specific about their mayonnaise, but for me it's dukes.
So a half a cup of mayonnaise, a half of a cup of cold cultured buttermilk, give it a shake first, just so that you're mixing up all of the butter solids and you want a half of a cup of the buttermilk, a one ounce package of hidden valley, ranch, seasoning mix and one very, very ripe and soft avocado.
Let's add a little fresh cracked, black pepper, because that's just always good and blend your ingredients together on the smoothie setting of your blender, while your blender or food processor is blending, take one small roma tomato and cut it into a quarter, inch dice and we're going to fold the tomato into the dipping sauce.
At the end now transfer your avocado ranch sauce into a medium sized bowl and then just gently fold in your chopped, tomatoes cover it and stick it in the fridge until you're ready to use it.
Okay, my friends! So once these are done frying you want to let them drain for a little bit and then serve them right away to serve them.
Just go ahead and cut them in half on a bias and angle so that they look pretty don't forget to put your dipping sauce in the center.
Maybe a little bit of garnish follow this link here and I'll teach you how to make the chilies presidente margarita.
So you can whip up some margaritas invite over a few friends, make some bad decisions with each other, and you have an authentic chili's happy hour right in your own home moment of truth.
