      We had this for lunch today with a fresh fruit salad....we'll do that again, for this is good! I don't like the flavor of cilantro, so substituted fresh curly parsley and a dash of cumin.

      Wonderful! Easy, delicious, and a nice change of pace. Filling too. I reduced to 3 eggs for the two of us and reduced the cream cheese (used reduced fat) accordingly. I kept the rest of the measurements the same. I used leftover homemade salsa. Much enjoyed, thanks for sharing!

      These are great. Like others I used corn tortillas. The egg/cream cheese mixture yielded a lot, so I ended up doubling all the other ingredients (except the butter, which I halved) for the "tacos". I had guacamole in the frig, so added that to them too. I also heated the beans. The flavors are all really yummy, though the cream cheese does get lost a little with everything else.
