"it was really good and i am making it again"

"I can't believe my family (three 20-something sons and husband), all of whom are big eaters, liked this dish. It is pretty filling considering there's no meat. Veggies are best if cooked tender-crisp. Had to use flour tortilla for my husband who doesn't like the corn ones. But this has very good flavor and I will definitely make it again."

"Fabulous! Plum tomatoes are not mushy, and green peppers and onions are crispy tender if not overcooked. What a great idea to use taco seasoning in this recipe! Yippie! Another great one for my vegetarian daughter!"

"This is gross, I don't want chunks of mushy tomato and onion in my taco. I want morningstar farms veggie crumble and with cheese, salsa, lettuce, FRESH tomato, avo and sour cream. Sure add seasoning to the meat! Just a heads up that I'm a picky vegetarian but this still sounds terrible. Love all the tips though."
