This is an excellent recipe and I highly recommend it. I like to increase the chili powder a bit to make it hotter. As a note, I have found that I need to simmer the lentils in water for 20 minutes then drain prior to making the chili otherwise they stay too firm and need much more liquid than the recipe calls for.
Not lentil chili, but just regular lentil soup but in chowder form. It was good though I needed to add a heck of a lot more ingrdients so it had flavor. I wouldn't make again because my lentil soup tasts much better.
Best vegetarian chili I EVER had, husband loved it as well. The only thing I did different is I added 1 can of kidney beans because I love them in chili. It was superb. Thank you for this wonderful recipe which I will be making often!
I really enjoyed making this recipe! Like some of the other reviewers, I prepped my lentils ahead of time by boiling them for a bit before I ever started the chili. I also had to add water to the mix since the chicken stock soaked up pretty quickly, but then, that might have just been me. I like just a tiny bit of spice and the two tablespoons was plenty. It was a really easy one to make, and nice and filling as well!
This is a marvelous dish. I have a little suggestion for those who are a little timid around spicy foods. Instead of adding more chili powder, (which tends to overwhelm the flavor,) I suggest dicing anaheim chili peppers. One nice large crisp one is a good starter, they are very mild and extremely flavorful, I even add them to my chicken soups etc. Enjoy, and God bless. Wolf
This is a great week night meal. Flavorful, easy and quick. I added extra cumin and topped with grated cheese and sour cream.
This recipe was easy to make and very tasty (I did cut down the amount of chili powder to 1 tsp, because I don't like spicy food). However, I had to cook it for 1 full hour to get the lentils to be even slightly tender! I added the juice I had reserved from the canned tomatoes so that there would be enough liquid for the longer cooking time.
This is easy, affordable and very healthy. I'm adding it to my regular rotation of meals. I did need to double the liquid even though I soaked the lentils for an hour before cooking. I also added kidney beans, as another reviewer suggested, which made it seem more like chili.
