MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 9, 2015

"My family prefers spicy food, which is probably the reason we found these so bland. Salt, pepper, minced fresh cilantro, cayenne and some picante sauce helped. Will make them again, just with the additions."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 9, 2013

"What an easy reminder. When I make a stir-fry in the evening, I sometimes make extra veggies and take a cup or so out to cool and store in the frig. Previously I always made a frittata with them in the morning but because I saw this I made wraps. Good idea."
