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

"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."

"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!"

"This was yummy! I doubled the recipe and made it in a pie pan. I used whole wheat fajita size tortillas instead of the corn tortillas and frozen shredded zucchini from my garden. Just make sure you squeeze out the water before adding it to the pan. You won't miss the meat at all!"
