Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Taco Eggrolls with Chipotle Ranch Dipping Sauce

I love using eggroll wrappers for different things. These little tacos turned out so good! A little of the southwest all wrapped up in something a little far east! These are great for dinner but can be used as an appetizer, too! This recipe only makes a dozen or so but adjust your ingredients to make more or less. Easy-peasy!

Taco Eggrolls with Chipotle 
Ranch Dipping Sauce

Chipotle Ranch Sauce
1/2 cup light Ranch dressing
3 Chipotle Sauce (found in the Mexican food aisle near the canned Chipotle peppers)

In a small bowl, combine the ranch dressing and the chipotle sauce. Set aside.

1 pound ground beef
1 4-ounce can diced green chilies
3 tablespoons taco seasoning
1 cup shredded cheese
12 -15 eggroll wrappers
oil for frying

In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat.

In a medium bowl, combine the ground beef, chilies and taco seasoning. Mix to combine. 

Place 2 -3 tablespoons of the meat filling on an eggroll wrapper. Top with 2 tablespoons of the cheese.

Brush the edges of the wrapper with water. 

Fold up the bottom around the filling. Then fold in the sides and secure the top. Set aside until all wrappers are filled.

Fry for about 3 minutes on each side until meat is done and wrapper is golden brown.

Serve with Chipotle Ranch dipping sauce, salsa and guacamole.
