Southwestern Egg Roll in a Bowl

by Kristen

Hey you.

Before you decide that the photos for this recipe have something left to be desired, can we agree for just a second that there is absolutely nothing sexy about a bowl of cabbage?

My Instant Pot Egg Roll Filling recipe has been top-rated this past year.  Then I was thinking one day about the Southwestern Egg Rolls from Chilis.  I used to get them all the time back when I was younger, and I felt that it would be fun to make a Southwestern Egg Roll ” in a bowl.”

I loved this recipe switch up!  I made these in my pressure cooker, but this recipe can be easily made on the stove.  I have included instructions for both below.   I also made a little video to show you how I made this lovely little meal.

This made such a lovely lunch!

If you are making this in your pressure cooker, you must vent this right away. Otherwise, your vegetables will turn into a mushy mess!
