  • Try adding some Trader Joe's vegan chorizo to the mix. It will solve any flavor deficiencies the current recipe may have. The corn tortillas are an issue though. Try wetting them or using flour.

  • If you microwave the corn tortillas a tad before attempting to fill, they will break much less often (or perhaps try steaming them?) - 2/8/09

  • I haven't made this yet, but my suggestion to those who have troubles with the con tortillas: To make them easier to work with -- wrap in aluminum foil and warm in the oven or on the stove for a few minutes. - 1/27/09

  • Corn tortillas kept breaking when I tried to role them. Over all the recipe was ok. Not a ton of flavor which I was suprised about since it sounded like it would be great. I think i will try it again but with flour tortillas next time. - 11/26/08

  • Husband had an issue w/ the corn tortillas as he was making it. Not sure what to do so they don't crack & disintegrate as he's making them. Also, he made more roll ups than the recipe called for because when he put 1/4 cup of the bean mixture into the tortillas he wound up with remaining mixture. - 10/11/08
