      The flavor in these is great, and I found that they freeze really well. I thawed them for a few minutes in the microwave, then popped them in the toaster oven till they were crispy again. I didn't care for the dipping sauce, but I think there might be an ingredient or two missing. Edited: I made more filling than I had wrappers for, and had the leftover in the fridge. It was a cold, damp evening, so I heated some frozen turkey broth left over from the smoked T'giving turkey. I added this filling, diced chicken and a splash of white wine. Made an awesome soup!!

      Disclaimer: I made these, but from the original Southern Living recipe, not this one. I made them with hot sausage. I made the rice and put together the meat mixture (minus the rice and cheese) the night before cooking them. I also made the dipping sauce the night before. Then, I assembled the filling and started making the egg rolls. I had never fried anything in my entire cooking experience, but this went ok. I was able to make 33 eggrolls from the recipe, and they were not skinny. I thought that the dipping sauce was too runny, I would omit the sour cream next time and add some salt - it just needed something. My grocery store doesn't carry the diced Mexican tomatoes, so I used diced with chilies that I could find. Bottom line - everyone LOVED these egg rolls, totally raved about them, and I'm going to make them again for a pot luck I'm attending this weekend.<br/>Update 9/24 - I've made these 4 more times, and even though they do take some time, they are totally worth it. I have nailed the dipping sauce - I only use 1 can of Rotel tomatoes, and no sour cream, and I add about 1 tsp of sea salt. It's perfect.
