Wow, just WOW! This was sooooo good. The only thing I did different is I left out the cilantro and used home-made seitan rather then packaged. Thank you!

This is SO good! Next time I make it I'll add mushrooms to the veggies. I topped with shredded lettuce and vegan sour cream and it was to die for!

Earth Balance has a great recipe contest right now. You can win a trip to NYC and have dinner at Candle 79, my favorite vegan restaurant.

This is an awesome recipe! I agree with Stephanie, I think some mushrooms, like portobellos, would be a great addition. I put some pico di gallo and guac on it and it was delicious!
