Allrecipes Community Tips and Praise

"I love it," raves one Allrecipes community member. "I added mushrooms and colored bell peppers. Oh, and I added jalapeno and garlic powder! Delicious. They freeze well and heat up well in the microwave."

"I make these often and like to keep some in my freezer to take to family get together. They are just as good as when fresh out of the oven after heating in the microwave. They're even good cold."
