Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 1/4 cups dry lentils
    4 cups water
    2 tsp olive oil
    2 tablespoons dry onions
    3 beef bouillon cubes
    (15 oz) can diced tomatoes
    2 teaspoons chili powder
    Dash hot pepper flakes or Tabasco sauce
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Directions

Place the lentils and the water in a large pot. Put the pot on the stove and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat so that the lentils are simmering gently. Cook for 30 minutes. Do not add the other ingredients until after the lentils have cooked. If the lentils begin to get dry, or if their water boils away then add more water. You want the lentils to remain juicy while they cook. When your 30 minutes are up, add all of the remaining ingredients. Simmer the chili for 15 to 20 minutes and serve.
