This is what we made yesterday....I have already posted the recipe for the Spring Veggie Soup. Here are recipes for the other meals we made....

Split each chili and remove any seeds. Arrange 2 pepper halves and about 3 T. cheese near the outer edge of the tortilla. Roll to enclose filling. Arrange the rellenos seam down in a greased 9x13 pan. Whisk sauce and sour cream together and pour over rellenos. We then froze these. Thaw and bake for 30 min at 350.
