    I couldn’t believe how good this was! For meatless…it was the BEST. Not to mention, who would’ve ever thought of putting corn or cottage cheese in it! But it was SOOOOO good! I recommend it HIGHLY!! I gave it a 10.0 rating!!! Whoever made this up…they deserve a medal!!! YUMMY!!!

    While this was tasty, I found it very visually unappealing. Once I sliced it and put it on my plate, it oozed out and looked yucky. I guess I never realized how much eye appeal is a part of the total dining process…My teen wouldn’t eat it, although she loves Mexican food. I had trouble finishing mine.

    THIS WAS YUMMY…I DO AGREE WITH THE OTHER REVIEWER WHEN SHE SAID IT WAS VISIUALLY NOT APPEALING….IF I WERE SERVING IT TO COMPANY I WOULD PROBABLY ADD ANOTHER LAYER OF CORN TORTILLAS TO THE TOP…BUT FOR MYSELF I PREPARED IT AS IS TO KEEP THE CALORIE COUNT DOWN…..DEEEE-LISH!!!

    Note: Refried beans are not vegetarian. They contain lard, or animal fat.
