    I just made this today, and my family loved it! I used a little more tomato sauce and water after I drained the lentils and added everything else to make it saucier. My dad didn't even notice that there was no meat in this chili! - 6/30/09

    Couldn't wait til tomorrow, tryed some tonight, it was awesome. I added 12oz of smoked sausage to the recipe. At 2 oz that adds another 180 calories. 15g of fat,5g saturated,50mg cholesterol,660mg of sodium,5g carbs,4g sugar,and 6g of protein. That totals 310 calories,unless you eat less meat. YUM!~ - 5/17/09
