Submitted by: ARTISTICAMANDA

Introduction

Serves 4; makes 2 tacos per serving.

(Original recipe called for hard taco shells or tortillas. I prefer lettuce wraps. It also originally called for chile and adobo sauce but I didn't use those so I left them out of the nutrition value.)

Directions

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook onion, garlic and salt until onion begins to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Add lentils and taco seasoning. Cook until spices are fragrant and lentils are dry, about 1 minute. Add broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until lentils are tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Mix sour cream, chile and adobo sauce in a bowl. Uncover lentils and cook until mixture thickens, 6 to 8 minutes. Mash with a rubber spatula. Spoon 1/4 cup lentil mixture into each taco shell. Top with 2 heaping tsp sour cream mixture, lettuce, tomato and cheese.
