I really liked the idea of the quesadillas.

30-45 minutes seemed like a little too long to cook the peppers and mushrooms. I think that it was more like 20?

I used canned beans. Actually, I used canned organic refried beans, which I bought on sale a while ago and hadn't used yet.

I made my own tortillas, as usual, but they didn't come out as well as they normally do.

I mixed Tofutti "american" and "mozzarella." After I put the quesadillas in the oven, I realized that I forgot about the onion.

I served it with some salsa, which I think was pretty key. Without it, the quesadilla was a little dry.

The tortillas look great! I've been wondering how to make them myself. Can you post your recipe?

Yeah looks great! I haven't made them yet.

Anonymous: the link to the recipe is in the post called "week 9." We're using recipes from websites so everyone has access to them. Have fun and let us know how it turns out!

Looks tasty! I'm glad you mentioned about the salsa - perhaps I throw one together in the time I'll save by using canned beans :)

I'm behind again this week! So even with the fake cheeze it's dry?

I've had Stagflation's homemade tortillas, he does a great job and I want more!!

looks soooo sooo good. I tried making my own tortillas (its on my food blog) i wonder how our recipes compare?

It would probably have been better with that non-tofutti stuff that comes in a block. But you work with what's available, right?

As for the recipe, I will try to find an electronic version of it and post it here, but I'm sure it's the same as any you would find online. That's where I got mine.

And now, back to sleep (I have a cold).
