Equipment

  • air fryer
  • pan
  • wooden spoon

Ingredients

  • 15 oz can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 red bell pepper finely diced
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • 1 cup frozen corn thawed
  • 1 heaping cup frozen spinach thawed and water pressed out with paper towels or 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 1/16-1/8 tsp cayenne pepper powder (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cumin powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 cup plant based cheese or regular
  • 12 6" soft fajita tortillas or 10- 6" taco tortillas (gluten free if needed)*

Instructions

  • Add red bell pepper to stove top pan. Saute until bell pepper is tender.
  • Add in black beans, corn, spinach, green onion, cayenne pepper, cumin powder, chili powder, and salt. Heat mixture until hot.
  • Mix in shredded cheese until melted.
  • Score your skillet of filling with your wooden spoon or spatula into 12 portions.
  • Add 1/12 of your filling to one end of your tortilla and fold in the sides around the filling and roll the tortilla up to cover the filling with the entire the tortilla. These will not be perfect. If it is easier, roll them up like taquitos with each end open, but make sure the filling is not falling out.
  • Bake in your air fryer for 3-4 minutes at 400F or until egg rolls are slightly browned. There is not need to preheat your air fryer or spray the tortillas with oil. Do not overcrowd the egg rolls so they brown on all sides. You may need to do 2-3 batches.
  • Enjoy your egg rolls with ranch dressing, guacamole, or a dip made of sour cream and a little bit of sauce from a can of chipotles.

Notes

If you bake these in the oven, preheat to 425F and bake for 10-15 minutes or until slightly browned. 
*10 - 8" soft taco tortillas can also be used. Calories will total about 570/serving if you have 3 1/3 servings. Which who honestly does that? My advice- enjoy this meal wholeheartedly and start tracking again tomorrow. ;)
