Bitchin' Kitchen Thursday

I used to order avocado eggrolls at restaurants out here all the time. Unfortunately, one appetizer of the tasty treats is more than the average person's daily caloric intake. This is my healthier homemade version and it tastes just as good.  


Eggroll wrappers or tortillas
1 avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced
Monterey jack cheese, shredded
2 Roma tomatoes, diced 
1 chicken breast, grilled or roasted and diced
1-2 strips of bacon, cooked and chopped
Butter or margarine, melted
A little red onion, diced
Garlic powder

(Optional) ranch or thousand island dressing, for dipping 

1) In a bowl, mix together the tomato, chicken, onion and bacon. Stir in some cilantro and garlic powder to taste.
2) Assemble the rolls with a little avocado on bottom (too much will bland the flavor), two tsp of the above mixture and a couple pinches of cheese sprinkled on top.

3) Aline the rolls on a baking sheet and brush with melted butter or margarine.

4) Bake at 400 degrees F 12-15 minutes for tortillas and 15-20 minutes for eggrolls.

5) Cool on a couple paper towels for 5 minutes. Halve the rolls diagonally and eat!

That looks delicious!! I might actually try to make this. I love making things myself instead of going to a store or restaurant. It just feels better and the food (usually) tastes better.

I don't know if you get the Cooking channel or not, but there's a new show on there called "Bitchin Kitchen." The chef looks insane. Haha. Just thought I'd let you know.
