Hyvee Culinary Expert TipWe always recommend watching your oil carefully to avoid smoking and to check the oil temperature using a thermometer. If you do not have a thermometer, check the temperature of the oil by dipping the handle of a wooden spoon in the oil, if bubbles form around the wooden handle, your oil is hot.
In a medium bowl combine leftover potatoes, black beans, pico de gallo, taco seasoning, cheese, cilantro, and garlic. Season to taste with salt.
Place 2 tablespoons potato filling in the center of an egg roll wrapper. Fold ends in, brush the exposed top and bottom with water and roll into a cylinder; chill until ready to fry.
Mix together ranch seasoning and sour cream in a small bowl; refrigerate until ready to serve.
Carefully fry eggrolls, a few at a time, until evenly browned and warmed through. Remove eggrolls from hot oil using a slotted spoon and drain on a cooling rack or plate lined with paper towels.
Serve warm with ranch sour cream. Garnish with fresh cilantro, if desired.
