For the Chicken egg rolls

  • 1 cup chicken cooked and diced
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican cheese
  • 1 can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 can yellow corn drained and rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder optional
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 15 egg roll wrappers

For the Ranch

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons ranch seasoning powder
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice


  • Preheat the air fryer to 375F and lightly grease the tray.
  • Mix together, chicken, cheese, beans, corn, chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, and paprika.
  • Split the mixture between the egg roll wrappers. Brush the edges of the egg roll wrappers with the bean egg and roll them like a burrito.
  • Brush the outsides of the rolls with the egg wash and place in a single layer in the Air Fryer basket. Make sure there is space between them.
  • Cook them for 9 - 10 minutes, making sure to turn them halfway through cooking.
  • Make the Tex Mex Ranch dipping sauce by combining all ingredients.
  • Serve the egg rolls with the dip.


  • Don’t overfill the egg rolls otherwise they won’t close properly. 
  • Make sure to seal them properly and cook with the seam side down
  • If you want them super crispy then spray them with oil before cooking.
  • Make sure to keep the egg roll wrappers covered with a damp cloth so they do not dry out during preparation.
  • Place them in a single layer in the Air Fryer with space between them for the air to circulate around each one so they cook perfectly.
  • Please remember to flip the egg rolls halfway through the cooking time so they cook evenly.
