Pretty bland. They do make a gluten free taco seasoning now. I would probably use that next time for better flavor. Also I might use a flavored jar of diced tomatoes rather than a chopped tomato and tomato paste. The toothpicks to be able to brown the outside are a must! Great idea just needs some tweeking. :)
