Hearty Lentil and Barley Chili

Submitted by: SBK135

Introduction

I made this lentil chili and realized the leftovers would be great as vegetarian empanada filling. I'd love to hear how else you use the leftovers. I made this lentil chili and realized the leftovers would be great as vegetarian empanada filling. I'd love to hear how else you use the leftovers.
