For egg rolls: In a large bowl, mix together avocado, bell pepper, chicken, cheddar cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, corn, cilantro, and Taco Seasoning. Place an egg roll wrapper on a flat surface with one corner pointing towards you. Dip your finger in water and lightly wet the edges of the wrapper. Place 2 Tbsp. of filling in the middle of the wrapper and fold the nearest corner over the filling and pull back to make a tight roll. Fold the side corners toward the center and roll forward till you have a neat egg roll. Repeat with the rest of your wrappers. Avoid stacking filled rolls because the wrappers will begin to stick together.

In a large skillet, heat 1-inch of oil over medium-high heat to 345 degrees. Carefully place a few egg rolls at a time in the skillet and fry until golden brown, about 2 min. per side. Remove from oil and place on a plate lined with paper towels. 

For Sante Fe dipping sauce: In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, ketchup, Mild Chili Powder, hot sauce, and lime juice. Serve alongside egg rolls.
