    It was rather salty but other than that, it wasn't too bad.

    A TVP warning for newcomers, it STINKS when you reconstitute it, at least with heat! I turned on my wax warmer/scent gizmo to counter attack the smell. And like others said, you need to crank up the spices! I will continue to use 2 cups TVP however, as you can freeze this stuff, which I did, since I am single. I decided to go full on Lacto-Ovo Vegetarian after successfully trying this recipe, since the flavor is just fine!

    This is exceptional. Even fooled a moderately picky meat-and-potatoes guy, even after I told him what it was. He still couldn't tell, said it was great and went back for seconds.

    I wanted more flavor so I added an extra TBSP of soy sauce, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp onion powder, 1 tsp chili powder, and another 1/4 C salsa. I am not much for spicy heat so this is perfect.
