💭 Air Fryer Method
If deep-frying the egg rolls is not your thing you can always make these egg rolls in your Air Fryer if you have one. Place the egg rolls in the basket or on the rack depending on what type of air fryer you have and cook at 350°F for approximately 9 minutes or until they have browned.
🥑 How to Pick the Perfect Avocado
Choosing the wrong avocado will ruin your dish. Especially when the avocado is the main ingredient like in Guacamole. Basically you want a perfectly ripe Avocado. This is a great article on how to select the perfect avocado.
To make this egg roll recipe you can either use my Super Easy Homemade Pickled Jalapeños recipe or you can buy them in a jar at your local grocery store. Mezzetta is a very popular brand but any brand pickled jalapeños will work for this recipe.
🌶 How to Handle Hot Peppers
The capsaicin in hot peppers is what makes peppers hot. If you handle hot peppers gloveless, it’s a guarantee that you’re in for a nasty case of chili burn, both on your fingers and anywhere you rub. Like your face. Ouch!
Even if you wear disposable gloves, be careful about what you touch. The gloves are going to protect your fingers, but touching any part of your body with the gloves after you’ve handled hot peppers can lead to severe chili burn. Resist the temptation to rub your eyes. Wait until you’ve removed your gloves and washed your hands thoroughly with soap.
🌡️ How Hot are the Peppers
The Scoville Scale is the measurement that tells you the spiciness of a given type of pepper.
|Pepper Type||Spiciness Rating|
|Bell Pepper||0 on the Scoville Scale|
|Banana Pepper||0-500 on the Scoville Scale|
|Poblano Pepper||1000-1500 on the Scoville Scale|
|Jalapeño Pepper||2500-8000 on the Scoville Scale|
|Tabasco & Cayenne||30,000-50,000 on the Scoville Scale|
|Habanero Pepper||100,000-300,000 on the Scoville Scale|
🌡️ Oil Temperature
Ideally, you want to heat the oil to at least 350°F before adding the egg rolls to the oil. A candy thermometer comes in very handy for this. If the temperature of the oil is too low your egg rolls will be very greasy. If the temp is too high the egg rolls will burn.
