Lentil Burritos

This has become one of our favorite in the rotation. Here is what you will need:

  • cup lentils, rinsed

  • cups chicken stock (we aren't true vegetarians so this is fine with us, but others may want vegetarian stock)

    tablespoon olive oil

    1/2 cup diced onion

    clove garlic, minced

    cup chopped zucchini

    cup chopped red bell pepper

    1/2 teaspoon ground cummin

    cup mild taco sauce

    ounces monterey jack cheese, shredded

    8 flour tortillas

    Bring water to a boil and add lentils. Simmer
    for 20 minutes. Drain and add cheese.

    Then add zucchini, onion, garlic, and
    stir in taco sauce. We let ours simmer
    until the veggies are tender.

    We serve ours with homemade guacamole, sour 
    cream, and lettuce. 

    Comments: Ours are a little runny because I didn't use taco sauce I used the taco seasoning. I added too much water and really it is not the consistency that the recipe calls for. It still tastes really good, maybe a bit messier.
