This is an unusual and interesting dish. I used almost every part of the recipe exactly except Cotija (it's difficult to find in some places), substituting it for Pepper Jack. I also added another cup of water during the final cookdown process (I found the initial mix didn't have enough liquid for a stew consistency).
A few final thoughts: the tomatillos provide a sour note that may not sit well for some alongside the starchy lentils. If that's the case, use half a tomatillo. Also, on second trials of this recipe I used a can of tomatoes with green chiles instead of a roma. This is a quick substitute. Finally, I'd be interested to see if anyone is brave enough to substitute black beans for lentils.
