    I changed this by taking out the mushrooms and adding black beans. I made it for a work potluck and everyone loved it! - 5/5/12

    Delish, I followed your recipe without the mushrooms (did not have any on hand) Great! I bet it's even better leftover! - 6/16/11

    I had all the ingredients on hand except the jalepenos. It was a nice spin on a standard taco recipe. - 10/7/09
