2 tablespoons cumin
1 tablespoon leaf oregano

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Ummm.. Sprinkle on cheese and heat until melted? Are you trying to start a witch hunt over some cheese?

lol no... i usually just leave the junk off cause it pollutes the flavor of the dish for me :) but yours looked purdy so i thought it might be something that i hadn't tried :)

Try Daiya. You wil love it. They sell it at my Krogers, and as soon as I tried it the first time, I wa hooked.

i've had daiya and thought it was super good at the very beginning of trying it... a few days later i found it sorta repulsive... i only appreciate it now on a handful of things and i usually need to broil it for a sec to melt properly (or to MY liking)... how did you get yours so melty/ real cheesy looking?

This is super yummy!!  :)>>> My whole family had seconds, and asked me too put it on permanent meal rotation.

what cheese are you using in your photo?

           

Daiya shredded cheddar. I think it melts better than any other brand I've tried.

this was awesome and my whole family loved it. my brother (definately not vegan) said he "couldn't even tell it was vegan" which, from him, is a compliment. this recipe made a massive amount of food but we ate it aaaall. i chopped up tomatoes to put on top, used pinto instead of black beans (black would've been better though!), and reduced the chili powder to 2T which was more than enough. and i didn't find it dry at all, it was an perfect texture. great recipe!!

I made a few small alterations.  I used 2 cups of rice, about 2/3 of a bag of frozen O'Brien potatoes, some meatless crumbles with taco seasoning, a can of vegetarian refried beans, and added a can of diced tomatoes.
DELICIOUS!  High five!  This one will become a regular meal.  Especially since it fed my girlfriend and I for 5 different meals (3 dinners, 2 lunches).
