      These were delicious, and I don't even like vegetables. Was out of mushrooms so used zucchini. The spices made a huge difference and as much as i dislike low fat cream cheese "raw" its perfectly fine when heated with spices. Thanks so much for posting this, i needed a low fat quick lunch, was starving.

      I made these for lunch today and really enjoyed them. I love the cumin/chili spice combo and didn't feel any need for salsa with the fresh tomato and green onions. I do think just a little srinkle of salt on the veggies would liven up the flavour. Next time I will also sprinkle a wee bit of sharp cheddar on top of the veggies (just enough to perk it up without losing the low fat quality of the recipe). Perhaps with the cheddar there would not be a need for salt. Thanks for posting this yummy recipe.

      Wow. What a great recipe to have on hand. I loved everything about this and so did my guests. I made half as you directed but had trouble with the tortillas tearing. The other half I sprinkled all the veggie mixture onto one tortilla toped it with a little Monterey Jack Cheese and placed another tortilla on top and kinda smashed it together gently. When done, I quartered them and served. Worked great. thanks
