    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    From the cookbook: 500 Vegan Recipes. This is a quick and flavorful meatless substitute for ground beef in any of your favorite Mexican dishes (tacos, burritos, enchiladas, quesadillas or nachos). I really like that this recipe can be made in 5-10 minutes, right in the microwave. Feel free to cut back on the cayenne pepper, or use it "to taste". I made it with the full amount listed, and did not find it to be too hot at all, just a nice amount of "heat". I've made this using TVP (Bob's Red Mill brand) as well as with Butler Soy Curls, both are delicious! I also cut back a little on the oil at the end, I probably used about 2 tbsp instead of the full quarter cup.
