Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



This is a good alternative to serve if you want a meatless meal. It went a little over the allotted time in the broiler so the tops came out more brown than I wanted. I made homemade salsa in place of the picante sauce and I sprinkled cilantro over all. Thank you Mikekey for sharing.
