Why You’ll Love Air Fryer Avocado Egg Rolls

  • Air Fried Egg Rolls fried to a perfect golden brown
  • Fantastic appetizer that’s ready in 15 minutes
  • You’ll use less oil which makes them healthier and there is no need to dispose of all the extra oil. Deep frying causes the egg roll wraps to absorb extra fat from the oil, where this recipe only uses a light spray of olive oil.
  • Avocados are a good source of healthy fats.
  • If you like guacamole and avocado, you’re going to love this great appetizer

Just like our Air Fryer Southwest Egg Rolls, this air fryer recipe uses less oil and has a faster cook time than traditional egg rolls. These (almost) copycat Cheesecake Factory’s avocado egg rolls are truly delicious!

Air Fryer Avocado Egg Roll Ingredients

Here’s everything you need to make your new favorite appetizer, crispy avocado egg rolls:

AVOCADOS: You’ll need to pick a few ripe avocados. Choose large avocados for this recipe. Tips for finding the perfect avocado can be found below.

DRIED MINCED ONION: This brings a slightly toasted and sweet flavor to the dish.

CILANTRO: Fresh cilantro really brings out a fresh flavor that cilantro lovers will love.

SUN DRIED TOMATO: These pack a punch of tomato flavoring that you don’t want to miss out on.

SALT AND BLACK PEPPER: Just a pinch and a dash, season to your taste.

EGG ROLL WRAPPER: You can find egg roll wrappers in the frozen and refrigerated section of your grocery store. You can also use spring roll wrappers or wonton wrappers (as they’re made from the same ingredients as egg roll wrappers). But, wonton wrappers are smaller than and egg roll wrapper. Adjust accordingly if you use the smaller size.

OLIVE OIL SPRAY: To lightly spray the inside of you air fryer basket and the egg rolls. If you don’t have olive oil spray, you can use a pastry brush to lightly coat the outside of the egg roll wrappers.

SWEET CHILI SAUCE: You may see this also referred to as Asian Sweet Chili sauce or Thai sweet chili sauce.

Variations

  • Not everybody loves fresh cilantro, so you can omit if necessary.
  • If you’re not a fan of sun dried tomatoes, replace with red onion and skip the dried minced onion.
  • Love Garlic? Then add a little garlic powder to the avocado filling.
  • Like a lime tang? Squeeze fresh lime juice in with the avocado mixture.
  • Use a spring roll wrapper instead of an egg roll wrapper if you want a dough that is made without eggs.

Dipping Sauce Ideas

There are a number of great dipping sauce choices you can use. Here are a few to try:

How to Find The Perfect Avocado

Finding a ripe avocado for this avocado egg roll recipe can be like finding gold sometimes. Here are some things to look for and tips to help you find the best avocado:

  • Check for bruising or cracks- if the avocado has mushy brown spots it is overripe.
  • Stem check- press down on the stem of the avocado and if it leaves a dent, it’s also overripe.
  • Firmness- do the gentle pressure test. Don’t use your fingers to press into it as you can easily bruise it. Instead, use your palm to gently squeeze it. If it yields, it’s ripe, if it doesn’t it’ll still need a few days to ripen.
  • Color- when picking Hass avocados, pick an avocado with a rich dark green color, even dark almost black avocados will do. Most often ripe avocados are dark in color. Light green avocados aren’t usually ripe enough.

How to Ripen an Avocado

If your avocados are still light green and hard, you can speed up the ripening process by placing them in a brown paper bag.

Avocados ripen faster in a closed paper bag because the gas they let off is captured, speeding up the process.

How to Store Homemade Egg Rolls

Any leftover egg rolls can be placed in an airtight container and kept in the fridge for 3-4 days.

How to Reheat Avocado Egg Rolls

Ready to enjoy some crispy Air Fryer egg rolls again?

All you have to do is reheat them and get those nice crispy outsides again:

  • Preheat your air fryer to 320F (for about 2 minutes) and then reheat your avocado rolls for 3-5 minutes.
  • You may want to flip them so they reheat evenly and check on them a while reheating to make sure they don’t get overcooked.
