SO HOW'D IT GO?

::)Trying this recipe now using veggie burgers chopped up instead of the crumbles.  Also, holding off on adding the salsa until we serve it because I am wondering if that would make it all runny?  We'll see.... javascript:void(0);

Yum yum yum! I modified the crust a little bit - added more water and some olive oil, a little coriander, and substituted cayenne for the chili powder. I used soyrizo crumbles and added Daiya cheddar cheese on the top. It came out a little spicy for me but my fiance loves it!

this did not turn out well for me.. i made some changes to the top two layers, which may have affected it (added refried beans, no burger crumbles or corn, extra spices)...  but I didn't care for the crust base at all and I followed that part of the recipe.  The texture wasn't very good (mine was kind of gritty) and I was hoping for a nice cornbread type thing.  I managed to save the top two layers since they tasted good as a bean dip for tortilla chips.

I made this for my wife and 14 month old daughter tonight.  We all loved it.  I did add some onions and bell peppers to the veggie mix.  I was not thrilled with the crust but I am just starting a vegan diet after being vegetarian for 13 years.  I supposed some of this is going to take some getting used to.

Amazing!! I doubled the recipe and used a 9x13 pan and substituted chickpeas for burger crumbles. It turned out fabulous and my whole non-vegan family loved it. Next time I'm going to triple the amount of beans, salsa and corn. I loved all that chunky goodness! Thank you for this fabulous recipe!!!

I had to join this website just to rate this recipe- it is that good!!  I have a large family so I doubled the recipe and it turned out great (2 cans of beans, 2 c corn meal/2 c water, 2 bags of MorningStar Burger Crumbles, etc in a 9x13 dish).  The only thing that should be added is that you definitely need to spray your baking dish with Pam first, my crust stuck big time.

EXCELLENT!!!  ;)b

oh! and we used soy sausage crumbles instead of the meat crumbles becaue the sausage ones are spicier/zestier and we dig on that.
