This was excellent! I used TVP for the first time and it turned out great. I didn't have cumin or oregano and I am not a big fan of cilantro. So I used only about 1 Tbsp of cilantro, but added chili powder, paprika, and diced jalapenos. It turned out so good that my picky meat-eating husband was crazy about it. Thank you so much. This will become a staple food in our house from now on.
