    Pretty bland. They do make a gluten free taco seasoning now. I would probably use that next time for better flavor. Also I might use a flavored jar of diced tomatoes rather than a chopped tomato and tomato paste. The toothpicks to be able to brown the outside are a must! Great idea just needs some tweeking. :)


I'm an enthusiastic young chef who loves to experiment!! I love cooking because i have a multitude of food allergies including all nuts and some legumes, as well as celiac disease. Cooking allows me to enjoy the foods i love without worry! <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> How I rate recipes: 5 star - WOW! This recipe was really good and exceeded my expectations. I made no or little changes to the recipe and will definitely make it again. 4 star - A very good recipe. I quite enjoyed it, but had to make a few changes here and there. All in all, it met my expectations. I will probably make it again. 3 star - An ok recipe. I liked it a bit, but had to make major changes. It may have a good flavour, but the texture was off or something. Usually I don't make three star recipes again. 2 star - I didn't enjoy this recipe. The flavour and texture was WAY off and so were the directions. I will not make this recipe again. 1 star - I don't give one stars! I think they are too mean!
