1 tablespoon pepper

½ tablespoon salt

½ tablespoon garlic powder

½ tablespoon onion powder

½ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

5 celery stalks, diced

1 red onion, diced

¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped

½ cup mayonnaise 

2 cups of ranch (1 cup buttermilk, 1 cup mayonnaise, 1 Hidden Valley ranch packet)

1 avocado

1 teaspoon ancho chili powder

One package of wonton wrappers

1 teaspoon celery seed

2-3 quarts of neutral oil, such as canola


Smoked Cream Cheese

Step 1

Remove the cream cheese from the wrapper and keep it in block form, if you're using two 8 ounce blocks, press them together to make a larger rectangle.

Step 2

Season all the sides with your favorite spice rub, such as a southwest Mexican-style rub.

Step 3

Place the cream cheese on a skillet and into the smoker at 225°F for 2 hours.

Step 4

After the two hours remove it and allow it to cool, resting at room temperature.


Step 1

In a mixing bowl add the chicken, the lime and lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of franks red hot, 1 tablespoon black pepper, ½ tablespoon salt, garlic and onion powder, and the cayenne pepper and toss together.

Step 2

Cook the chicken on the grill at 300°F with smoke level 6 until it reaches 165°F.

Step 3

Remove the chicken and while it's still warm, shred it into a bowl.

Step 4

Add in the smoked cream cheese, diced red onion and celery, celery seed, ½ cup of mayo, and the remaining 5 tablespoons of Franks Red Hot. Mix together to form a chicken salad type of consistency.

Step 5

Set in the refrigerator to cool and use later to make the eggrolls.


Step 1

To make the sauce, simply blend together on low speed 2 cups of ranch, one peeled and seeded avocado, and the ancho chili powder.


Step 1

To form the eggrolls lay a wrapper down in front of you with the points out like north, south, east, west, diamond style. Add 2 ounces of the chicken filling into the middle and elongate it, such as stuffing a burrito.

Step 2

Dampen your finger with water from a bowl and trace the outside ½ inch of the wrapper so the cornstarch mixes with the water on your finger making a sticky glue so you can seal the wrap.

Step 3

Fold in the left and right edges, fold the bottom up and over the filling, pulling it tightly, and finish by rolling it forward so a nice point is formed in the middle of the egg-roll.

Step 4

Dust in cornstarch and set it on a parchment lined sheet tray. Repeat this process until you have made all the egg-rolls.

Step 5

Place 4 at a time into 350°F oil and fry until a crisp golden brown. About 2-3 minutes.
