Pulled Pork Egg Rolls

Do you have leftover pork from the backyard smoker, a crockpot pork roast, or maybe a local barbecue joint? Making pulled pork egg rolls is a great way to use previously cooked pork for a delicious casual appetizer or snack.

A simple filling of pork, corn, black beans, and bell peppers lends itself to a Southwestern or barbecue meal or snack. The rolls are a great addition to a Southwestern theme when served with Queso cheese or salsa dip. On the other hand, the rolls are wonderful for a backyard barbecue when served with a barbecue sauce.

Add about a tablespoon of the black beans, corn, and *pepper on top of the pork. Tightly place the wrapper corner edge over the filling and roll away from you. Fold in ends of wrapper toward the center and continue to tightly roll the wrapper around the filling being sure that the wrapper does not extend beyond the end of the filling.

  7. Seal the corner to the rolled wrapper.
  8. Repeat with remaining wrappers/filling.
