  • Add in the can of Italian seasoned tomatoes (this is a easier way to get the Italian tangy taste to the soup, you could use raw chopped tomatoes and add in some minced garlic, herbs and Italian seasoning)

Bring it all together:

  •    

Instructions

  • Mix Chicken, onion and cheese with ranch in a bowl
  • Take a little dish and fill with water and one teaspoon of flour (flour will help as glue to hold the tip of the egg wrap from unfolding.)
  • Separate one egg wrap square, in the center of the wrap put a tablespoon of filling and wrap it up.
  • You could cover it and put in refrigerator for later, or if you would like to fry and eat right away:
  • In a small sauce pan heat up oil (about 1 cup.) as soon as oil is ready drop 2-3 rolls to fry. Keep temperature on medium low so the roll cooks through. *Caution! Oil is hot!
  • As soon as roll browns up, take it out.
