Jalapeno Cream Cheese Rolls

The first step is to let the cream cheese come to room temperature and then mix in the cheddar, jalapenos, and black pepper. 
These are inspired by jalapeno poppers and they taste best freshly fried and eaten right away.  The cheese just melts and makes these deliciously ooey-gooey.  There are just a few simple ingredients: Cream cheese, cheddar cheese, black pepper, jalapenos, and spring roll wrappers.      
Then spoon out a small amount on the spring roll sheet.  You don’t need to put too much filling as it puffs up when fried.  
Fold the bottom corner up over the filling.
Next, fold the two sides in towards the center.
Add the “glue” (mixture of flour and water) to the edges.
And roll upwards, from the filling side to the corner at the top.  
Preheat your oil to medium- high while you wrap the remainder of the spring rolls.  The number of rolls that you can make depend on the amount of filling you use.
Fry them until they turn a light golden color.  
Spoon the rolls out onto some paper towel to let the excess oil drain before serving.
