      Made for Thanksgiving as an appetizer and it met with raves. I substituted cilantro for parsley for more flavor and removed all the seeds from the added jalapenos to keep the heat in check. Do pass on the dip as it is awful. Used salsa, con queso and guacamole for topping. Recommend, will definitely make again. Cooking time with a deep fryer was just a few minutes not 12-15 as noted. I kept egg rolls hot in the warming drawer of oven after cooking until needed.
