We loved this!! Even my 11 year-old son, who is pretty picky. I made a few changes; I added a little extra onion, as well as half of a yellow pepper, diced. I sautéed these until soft, and then followed the recipe as printed. (I added about 1/4 cup of extra broth.) I lightly pureed the sauce with a hand blender to reduce the chunkiness of the veggies. I also used flour tortillas (a few whole wheat, too; I preferred these), since my family is not very excited about corn tortillas. Broiling was not my preferred method; I baked them at 425 degrees for 12 minutes. I will make again soon; the only request my kids had was for a little less spice (Perfect for the grown ups, but I may leave out the red pepper next time.) Yummy!
