Combining flavors and foods of different cultures has become a thing for me lately. One of the first things I made that started this trend of mine: Mexican Spring Rolls with Cilantro Lime Dip. Yuuuum!
These Mexican Spring Rolls with Cilantro Lime Dip use my Pico de Gallo as the filler. But you could use any chunky salsa that you like such as our Mexican Street Corn Salsa. The pico is light, fresh, and therefore one of my favorite appetizers to make. You could also throw in some avocado! I love these rolls because even thought they are pan fried, they are still rather light and refreshing.
When you are rolling these beauties up, make sure that you are not adding any of the salsa juice. Otherwise, when they hit the oil they pretty much start EXPLODING! (Water + hot oil = BOOM). To avoid those painful splatters, I use a fine mesh splatter screen like this guy which keeps your stove area clean and your skin safe. I use it allllll the time it is amazing. I love this one because it has feet on it that you can use to prop it up on the counter without getting grease and oil everywhere.
And here are some picture of how you roll these spring rolls up to go along with the instructions. It is just like making a mini burrito!
I’m not going to lie, these Mexican Spring Rolls with Cilantro Lime Dip take some time. Each one is crafted individually by hand so making a good sized batch can be time consuming. But they are so completely worth it and will be gone in just seconds, making you wish there was a handy machine that could crank them out for you all day. Seriously, people just devour these. Have a spare set of hands around? Put them to work rolling these up and you will be done in no time!
The Mexican Spring Rolls with Cilantro Lime Dip are perfect for Mexican dinners, fun appetizers, snacks, and even game day!
