Very good. I did the quick-soak method, and I used red and yellow peppers since my husband can't eat the green ones. I also found I didn't have whole cloves, so I just sprinkled some ground cloves in there. I also made the whole-wheat tortillas from the recipe in SP and it was a good combo. - 4/22/08
