I'm rating this recipe 4 stars for the taste, but 2 stars for the frustration making them and appearance. But I admit it's mostly user error. The first time I made the mistake of assembling them before preheating the oven. By the time the oven got to temp the tortillas had crumbled apart and they were a mess. So I pulled out the stuffing, tossed the tortillas and started again. That time I decided not to try the broth thing again and microwaved the tortillas for 15 seconds to make them pliable. That worked fine, and they turned out much better (although most of them still split apart in the oven). I used ground chicken and added black refried beans to the filling. They tasted great, despite not looking so nice. The family loved them and assured me looks aren't everything.

I followed the recipe exactly (I used Morningstar veggie grounds though) and it had a wonderful flavor and was fairly easy to make. Although a bit spicy, my toddlers loved them as well. Definitely something I would make again and again!

This was so good. I used Quorn Crumbles. My DH asked me what kind of "meat" was in it :P I'd definitely make it again, it was an instant hit.

These were a big hit at my house. Made them with the veggie round and turned out great. Fast and easy to make - I will definitely make again!

The kids wanted soy chicken but lioved this version too. Added some frozen and drained spinach to the filling. This might have made the taquitos more damp and they were slightly falling apart before baking. Crunchy when baked and tasted like real meat.

These taste like they have meat in them - I skipped the broth step - just wrapped a few tortillas at a time in wet paper towel and microwaved for 20-30 seconds to get them pliable. Turned out perfectly... really delicious!
