    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
