Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 4–6 minutes or until they become soft and fragrant. Stir several times during cooking.
  2. Add the lentils and seasonings. Stir so that the seasonings are mixed in.
  3. Slowly add the water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and cover. Cook for about 30 minutes or until the lentils are tender.
  4. Uncover and cook for 5 minutes more until the mixture has thickened and the liquid is absorbed. Mash slightly with a fork.
  5. Heat corn tortillas according to package directions.
  6. Spread 1/4 cup lentil mixture onto each tortilla.
  7. Serve with salsa, cheese, and lettuce.

Tips

Spread the cooked lentil mixture onto a pan or large plate to make a party dip. Then layer on the salsa, cheese, and lettuce. Serve with baked tortilla chips.

Substitute 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder for 2 cloves garlic.
