Despite his skepticism while these were cooking, my husband loved these. I thought they could use a bit more spicing up. The recipe doesn't indicate to cover the lentils while they cook, but mine dried out while still crunchy, so I had to add water. Next time I'll cover.
This was OKAY... Definitely not spicy in any capacity, EVOO works fine in place of coconut oil if you're not looking to spend the extra money. I recommend adding a can of diced chilies if you want some warmth to the dish, you absolutely need to double the liquid to soften the lentils, I just eye balled it after my broth was absorbed 15 minutes into the simmer. I also recommend topping with a little dollop of sour cream.
This recipe was very good. I was a little skeptical at first, not being too familiar with lentils and all. I did have to use about 2 cans of chicken broth for the lentils to get somewhat soft. I added a dollop of sour cream, half of a cut up avocado, and salsa to top it off. My husband, who is a die hard meat lover, even liked the nachos. Won't make it often, but every once in a while these will come as a nice change of pace.
kids like it! could use more spice for adults.
Delicious! I only threw the lentil mixture and cheese on the chips and it was really good. Husband loved them and has already asked for them again. I'm sure the rest of the ingredients make them even better, but not even necessary!
This is such a great cheap and easy meal. The lentils and black beans add great protein and vitamins with a much lower fat content than ground beef. We like these nachos with sour cream, salsa and guacamole.
Great! Made it vegetarian by using vegetable broth. Topped with sour cream and sliced olives. Yum!
Even my teenager liked these!
