    Diabetics- skip the corn (high in sugar) and add red pepper and it's perfect. Great flavor. This recipe is great. - 11/11/08

    Wrapping tortillas in plastic wrap for warming can cause transfer of minute petrochemicals to the food. Better to heat the tortillas over aluminum foil for about 30 seconds on top of the stove. - 10/24/08

    I made this for dinner tonight for Hubby, he said to rate it 5 stars, he loved it. I did use a little taco seasoning instead of chili powder and I added a tiny bit of onion. I made it with black beans. - 4/27/09

    These were great. Even my husband loved them and he is not a veggie and bean person at all! We had ours with brown rice with a spoonful of the burrito filling on top for some extra flavor. - 5/5/09

    I actually place my tortillas in the micro wave between two sheets of damn paper towels for 30 seconds each side (if doing 4 tortillas...and dont forget to place damp paper towel between each tortilla) I would also add some cumin to the beans for additional flavor w/o adding calories - 3/8/09

    My kids enjoy this. I skip the hot sauce add fresh cilantro. Also add jalapenos for the kids who love it hot. Some times I add black olives or other veggies to mix it up but corn, beans, and the cilantro & spices are a must. They also like left-over rice and fresh tomatoes in it occasionally. - 2/1/09

    It makes a nice mix, especially if you cook up some onion first. I would add more chili powder and some salt, though. Cumin would be good as well. - 7/14/08

    Just made this tonight- it was awesome!!!! Used refried ff beans, and flat out bread instead of a corn tortilla. Not sure but I think this cuts the calorie content. Thank you so much for sharing : ) - 2/3/09

    These were a great quick meal. My kids frowned when they saw them, but actually thought they were very good. As my oldest put it - the beans and corn compliment each other. - 5/7/09

    Wow, thanks! I had just about everything in the house anyway (except for some minor substitutions). Had red beans and tortilla wraps from when Publix had BOGO. I never drain my beans, so this was a bit wet, so I added 1/2 cup granulated TVP to the mix. Dinner was fast and practically FREE! - 4/28/09
