SO HOW'D IT GO?

Everyone in my house LOVED this recipe.  The "cheese" sauce was great and the flavor of it blended so well with the beans and enchilada sauce.  I had just cooked a big batch of pinto beans and was looking for a way to use the leftovers.  I left them whole, but next time I think I'll refry them first.  I rolled-up the tortillas, which was messy and fun, but next time I'll do the layered casserole as everyone suggests.  Great recipe!

We all thought this recipe was amazing! I did differ because it was late at night and the health food stores were closed, so I couldn't get any nutritional yeast, SO instead of the entire cheese sauce I just used extra salsa. I also forgot to add the onions, but it still turned out really good. I used some hot fire-roasted salsa and we thought that it was the best part.

I thought the flavor was good :) i tried to make a layered casserole like some others had suggested, not so good :( 
i used some heart smart flour tortillas and they ended up being sticky and gooey :(
BUT the recipe was great! I ate mine on top of lettuce with some hot sauce and vegan sour cream :)

very good recipe to work with!

I made my own batch of gluten free "flour" tortillas that made about 8.

With the cheese sauce I used a little more N.Y.F. and added some potato milk powder to the water (it sweetens and thickens), added a slice of soy chedder cheese and cut the garlic in half.

And I used half refried jalepeño beans and half whole black.

This turned out really well! I used 2 cans of black beans (3 would've been too much) and the food was enough for dinner, lunch for 2 people! The flavors turned out better than I thought...this is definitely a keeper!

Don't know if you've had Vegan Gourmet but, it doesn't melt as good as that stuff, but it tastes WAY better (I think VG is repulsive...)

I would recommend it, but I don't want to be responsible if you end up hating it, lol.  My boyfriend is an omni and he loves it, so that's probably a good review...

Oh, also, I wouldn't try to make grilled cheese with it... I tried and it takes too long for it to start melting so by the time it was just starting to melt, the bread was already burning.

Anyway let me know if you try it and like it.  Where are you from?  You might have a supplier near you depending on where you are.

Yeah, I've had the Vegan Gourmet, and I'm not crazy about the cheese.  I haven't been able to find the teese anywhere around me, but I'll keep looking.  I'm in Sherman Oaks, CA and I keep checking at Whole Foods but no luck yet.  Maybe Follow Your Heart has it, I'll have to check.  If I don't find it, I'll break down and order some... but I promise I won't be mad at you if I hate it.   :-D 

Teese is made by Chicago SoyDairy.  I just went to their website and pulled a list of where it's sold in Cali... I don't know how close Sherman Oaks is to any of these places but here you go:

I topped them with the enchilada sauce, a slight bit of the mixture, Cheddar "Teese", black olives, and cilantro.

I meant green onions not cilantro, FYI

I topped them with the enchilada sauce, a slight bit of the mixture, Cheddar "Teese", black olives, and cilantro.  I served it with some organic Spanish Pilaf and organic guacamole... SOOOOOOOO GOOD!

How is the teese cheese, taste- and texture- wise?  I've been wanting to order some, but it's a bit expensive with shipping, so I want to get an idea of whether it's worth it or not. 

I personally love the Teese...  I've had cheddar flavor and mozzarella (both are good) but haven't tried the nacho Teese yet. 

As far as texture...  the Teese, before it is melted is very soft and moist.  It tastes good cold, too, in my opinion.  As for melting it takes awhile before it starts to melt, but when it goes... so good!
