Cheesecake Factory / Chilis Copycat recipe Montana style

Homemade Baked Southwest Egg Rolls are a treat at home. We live a long way from a Cheesecake Factory or a Chili's restaurant so we don't get  to enjoy, on a regular basis, the restaurant style egg rolls that everyone knows and loves. Everything on the list for this tortilla version is a household staple. So no special trips to the grocery store are required when the craving for these egg rolls hits.

My kids love helping with meals (and eat better when they help) so this recipe is a win win! The ground beef filling goes together fast and my kids jump in to assemble the egg rolls. It’s an all-in-one family meal that brings a restaurant favorite home.

  • You can use the traditional egg roll wrappers instead of tortillas.
  • Try recipe in Air Fryer instead of oven.
