eating this right now :) very good


Very nice, I liked that the quesadilla gained some additional flavor and nutrition without losing the basic flavor of a quesadilla.


I made this recipe for dinner last night. I didn't have cilantro or a jalapeno, so I omitted those ingredients. These still turned out great. I used nacho flavoured Follow Your Heart brand soy cheese. It melted wonderfully and added a lot of great spicy flavour. I halved the recipe and still had too much for just my husband and I. He loved it and he'll be taking the leftovers for lunch today. Thanks for the great recipe!


OMG this is sooo good! My dad liked this! He couldn't eat much because he can't eat onions, but he loved it. He is one of the most carnivorous (sp?) people I know. He thinks my "vegan food" is disgusting. For him to really like this is a big compliment. So...ya..that means that your recipe is amaazing. Thanks so much. My sis and I want these every day! They are sooo good.
