My oldest son says "You can tell it's not meat but it's not bad anyway." From him this is high praise! For myself I made it into a "taco" salad with a huge bowl of lettuce and tomatoes, some salsa, low fat cheese, and fat free sour cream. It was great! Submitted by:

I like this recipe. I'm not much of a bean eater, but I added this into my regular taco mix, left out some of the meat and it does well. Best of all I get added fiber. I'll have to try it when I just make a taco salad as see how well it does. I;ll be sharing this with my family and friends. Submitted by:

I used 1 tablespoon vegetable broth powder, reduced to 1 tablespoon olive oil, and used Minute brown rice (add in the last 5 minutes). This reduced the sodium to 101 mg and calories to 102. Thanks for the great idea. Submitted by:

I cooked this last night and put it on some toasted flour tortillas and topped them with a little low fat mexican cheese blend, chopped tomatoes and onions. It was very good! I portioned it out and am keeping in the freezer for a dinner next week. I did it in the crock pot and it was simple! Submitted by:

I've never had a lentil in my life, so decided to try this recipe--it was wonderful! My family really enjoyed it. I served it on a whole-wheat tortilla, with low-fat cheddar cheese, fat-free sour cream and salsa. Delicious!! I will certainly try more of your lentil recipes. Submitted by:
