I love these!! I don't use the green chilies in the sauce and use onion powder rather than onions in the filling. I also use a dash of red pepper flakes in the filling. The filling freezes nicely too. I spent 20 minutes last night trying to remember where this recipe was, and thought I'd tuck it here for safe keeping. So glad that you had already.
