This recipe was good but needed some spice so we added salsa to it!

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!
