Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the cooked wild rice, sour cream and dill. Add salt to taste.

Stuff the rice mixture into the tomatoes. brush the outside of the tomatoes with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and season lightly with salt. Cover loosely with foil and bake until the tomatoes are tender and the filling is hot, about 25 minutes.
