I was highly impressed with this recipe, as it's quite difficult to find one that holds its form after being sandwiched. However, after some experimentation, I actually found that, crumbled, it works even better as taco/burrito filling, especially if you double the cumin and use the optional corn.

Thanks for posting this.
