First off I want to say thanks to Pam for putting the idea of using lentils in a burrito in my head. I would have never thought of that combination and really enjoyed it. Second like other reviewers I tweaked the recipe which is something I usually do to make it to my family's liking. First off I cooked the lentils all by themselves because I have never cooked lentils and was a little apprehensive.I also made two different variations of the burritos one with leftover ground venison, lentils, tomatoes, sauted onions, minced carrots and brown rice and the other with lentils, brown rice, and salsa. I never really measure the seasonings just add what looks good. The carrots I finely chopped using my mini food processor. Something I always add to any ground beef/ground meat dish. I figure it gives my kids extra veggies and also makes the meal go farther which is another great thing about lentils. I made a whole 16oz bag and had at least 2 cups extra for another nights meal along with extra leftover rice. I was looking up burrito recipes in the first place because I found a bunch of wraps for a great price. I used the wraps and lentil/venison lentil filling to make at least 20 make ahead burritos. I'm going to do the same tomorrow with eggs, salsa, ham, cheese and tomatoes. Hope this helps and thanks again Pam for a highly versatile recipe!
