We try vegetarian recipes from time to time and don't miss the meat...this time I chose to make this for dinner but added 1/4 lb. extra lean gr. beef that I found hidden in the back of the freezer. I added 1/2 tsp. taco seasoning when browning the meat. This is really delicious and will try it without the meat next time. You can add other veggies as well. The zucchini disappeared during cooking so anyone who doesn't like it won't even know it's there. Very versatile recipe.

I made this recipe for a vegetarian friend and she loved it. I used Mexican corn and a little more jalape?o for spice.

This was very good, but you have to make sure that the cheddar is actually vegetarian, since most cheddar cheese contains rennet in them.

I was looking for a one pot meal that was Vegetarian. I don't eat meat, but my teen boys do and they didn't even miss the meat. This was excellent! Thank you!

Really good! I would probably use a little more in the way of spices, but in general it was tasty. I used homemade tortillas for this(my first attempt) and it turned out fairly well. I used mild salsa, might try it next time with a smidgen of green chiles added to the salsa.

Excellent! Just replace the Cheddar cheese and it's vegan.

This was awesome. I added chopped onion and crushed red pepper. I also added more cumin. I will make this on a regular basis.

You would never know this has zucchini in it! My husband doesn't like zucchini but thought this was really good. I doubled recipe...used oval baking dish and baked longer...I will be making again.

Our family enjoys this sort of dinner and when I saw it was vegetarian it was a sure hit for my non meat eating grown daughter who was visiting this noon. I added a tablespoon or so of shelled sunflower seeds for an extra crunch and to complete protein. This was a very quick but delicious recipe for a September day!
