lentil/rice taco filling
- 3/4 cup dry lentils
- 3/4 cup brown rice (do not substitute white rice, it just isn NOT the same)
- 4 cups water
- 4 beef bouillon cubes (I don't like the msg so I make my own "bouillon" replacement)
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- I like to dice up onion and jalapenos
In a 2-quart saucepan bring the water to a boil. As the water is heating, add all ingredients. Bring the whole thing to a nice fat boil. Reduce the heat to low. Place a lid on the lentils and allow the mixture to simmer for about 45 to 50 minutes. The water should be mostly absorbed.
This recipe does very well in the crock pot on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours. A double recipe fits nicely in the crock pot too.
For tacos, make some home made flour tortillas, add veggies, sour creme and home made salsa and YUM!
