    Didn't have some of the listed ingredients. Easily substituted in spinach, whole wheat tortillas and my own cheese mixture. Turned out great!

    Love this, it was so easy to follow. I added rice, beans and corn into mine and topped with some black olives.

    They turned out great! They were super easy to make and very healthy. However there wasn't quite enough to make 12, we only made about 9.
