Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    3/4 cup dry lentils (brown ones)
    3/4 cup dry brown rice
    4 cups water (I HAD TO ADD MORE WATER WHILE IT COOKED)
    4 beef bouillon cubes (or chicken, vegetable)
    (I USED SOUP BASE INSTEAD OF THE CUBES 1 1/2 tablespoons of the soup base)
    4 teaspoons chili powder
    1 teaspoon cumin
    2 teaspoons onion powder
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Directions

Makes about 8 servings about 1/2 cup each.

Dump everything in a medium pot and boil. Turn down the heat to a little lower than medium and cook covered for 45 to 60 minutes until lentils and rice are both cooked I usually stir every 5-6 minutes, but you probably don't need to once the spices are mixed! Check to see if you need to add more water while cooking.

Use just like regular taco filling.
