SO HOW'D IT GO?

i just made this.  it was pretty good.  i halved the recipe.  for the sauce i used 3/4 cup soy milk, 2T flour and 1T nutritional yeast.  i wish i had used more nutritional yeast.  it was not so cheezy flavored... i also added cumin, tobasco, and salsa to add flavor.  it was a good consistency.  i nixed the corn and added some finely diced zucchini that i steamed.  baked on whole wheat tortillas.  pretty good!  i used more peppers than i should have cause i love spicy.  next time i will throw in some garlic, too.  overall, pretty tasty.
