    I made this tonight for dinner, and it was a simple and tasty meal. I topped it with mango salsa and scallions, though I think I'll try it without for tomorrow's leftovers. Low fat sour cream may be nice on top too. - 5/18/08

    I love this! I do it all the time but I like to skip the cheese and to add Ground Cinnamon and Hemp oil, or Flaxseed oil, or Olive oil for the Omegas! Thanks for posting it here! :-) - 11/21/08

    I eat this combo all of time. Try using Trader Joe's precooked lentils, some onion and red bell pepper sauted in olive oil and a touch f honey and cinnamon (just a touch)...Awesome! - 5/31/09
