Ancho Lentil Taco Filling

Submitted by: PETUNIA.DINGUS


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    2 teaspoons olive oil
    1 small onion, minced
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    2 1/2 cups cooked lentils (from about 1 cup dried)
    3 tablespoons tomato paste
    2 tablespoons hot sauce (preferably Cholula)

    Spice mix:
    1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    2 teaspoons ground ancho chile
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
    1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

First combine all of the ingredients for the spice mix and set aside. Also, keep a cup of water within reach, youíll need to add splashes as you cook.

Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sautee the onion and garlic in the oil with a pinch of salt for about 3 minutes, until lightly browned. Add spices and toss them for 30 seconds or so to toast.

Lower heat to medium, add lentils, a few splashes of water, tomato paste and hot sauce; use a spatula to mash them a bit as they cook, until they hold together. If your spatula isnít strong enough to accomplish this, just use a fork. Do this for about 5 minutes, adding splashes of water as necessary if it appears dry. Taste for salt and seasoning; you may want to add more spices or hot sauce. And thatís it, time to serve!
