Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Very good! Made it for lunch today with canned black beans, so added onion powder, garlic powder, chili powder, and some cayenne, no nutritional yeast, and used shredded mexican blend cheese. Will absolutely make again, maybe saute onions and garlic instead of using the powders. Submitted by:

I really liked this. I didn't have sweet potato so I subbed corn. I didn't have salsa so I had to get creative. I put tomato sauce, grape tomatoes, cilantro, salt and a little hot sauce in my food chopper and made some salsa. No Nutritional Yeast. My toddler loved it. Will make again. Submitted by:

Could we PLEASE know the amount per serving? Is it one cup? This is basic info and should be included with each recipe.

This looks good but the calories, carbs and sodium all seem high to me.

There were def more likes than not so I will give this a try. Sounds very good to me. What does the nutritional (?) yeast do for this recipe? Is it necessary? Submitted by:

This was really good and much better than I was expecting. I omitted the nutritional yeast since I didn't have any. My two year old asked for seconds. Thanks! Submitted by:

So....I made this last night and well....it wasn't exactly a success which was a surprise because all of the ingredients are quite acceptable in my family - except I never had used the nutritional yeast - does it sometimes have an unpleasant back taste...hot sauce sprinkled on top helped remarkably.

Looks way too carb-y for me. Are you sure the nutrition facts are correct? And no, Not Eating Faux Cheese (gotta love the hexane) any time soon. I apologize, but.... not going to rate this, either. Actually, though, if you did without the Faux Cheeziod substance, this might be good on occasion. Submitted by:

The nutritional data for this recipe is very confusing.
Are the 328.7 calories for the whole dish, or for one serving.

Are the Carbohydrates, (51gr) for one serving or for the whole recipe. The recipe sounds great, but I can't prepare it until I know what is the nutritional content per serving

Very good. I used real cheese and omitted the nutritional yeast because I didn't have any but will try again in the future. Great healthy meal that I can see filling me up for days! Thank you! Submitted by:

This sounds interesting but I don't understand why the calories are so much higher in the vegan version than the original - would like to know if that is correct. Submitted by:

Daiya cheese is a delicious non-dairy alternative, I use it all the time! It can be found in most organic sections at grocery stores or Whole Foods. Nutritional yeast can also be found in most organic sections, it's great for sauces or gravies! : ) Submitted by:
