These were nice. I made them vegetarian by skipping the bacon (though I seasoned with bacon salt, which is vegetarian). I cut the spinach way back to 7 oz - the full 16 oz would have been a ton! Otherwise made as written, using whole wheat tortillas and adding a sprinkle of extra cheddar on top. Thanks for the recipe!
I made these basically as stated. I have bacon grease in the fridge, so I used that to cook the onion/mushrooms in and didn't add any actual bacon. I also just eyeballed it on all of the veggies and didn't go with exact measurements. Just wanted to make enough to fill the tortillas. I also added some taco seasoning to the filling and then, instead of flour tortillas, I used all the leftover tortillas I had in the fridge (a combo of whole wheat, multigrain and low carb). I'm sure if I had followed the recipe EXACTLY it would have turned out great, but my few variations were great as well. YUM!
