MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 20, 2014

"This was pretty good, but it needed some adjustments. The filling was pretty watery, so next time I may drain the tomatoes. I also think I will use Rotel tomatoes instead to add some more flavor. My husband requested that I cut down on the amount of cream cheese, so there will be that, too. This is a good starting point at least!"

"Great base for healthy vegetarian burritos...I must admit I changed the recipe quite a bit..added 2 fresh jalepenos, red onion and use rotel instead of diced tomatoes and taco seasoning instead of the separate seasonings listed and no rice...I also omitted the cheese topping and added sliced avocado instead...delicious!"
