    tgobbi's Note:

    A lentil burrito that can be eaten hot or cold. From the Chicago Tribune: 11/13/90. (I'm guessing on the prep time but it should'nt take much more than 15 - 20 minutes). It can be made with vegetable stock for vegetarians.

      We love these and make exactly as written but without hot sauce so it's a kid friendly meal. We think best combo is equal mixture of red and green lentils (half and half). Easy to make ahead and then reheat when ready to melt cheese.

      I just made this recipe for the 2nd time and I LOVE it! So much flavor, easy to make and freezes really well. Super healthy too! Thank you! I used whole wheat tortillas but the rest was the same.

      Our first lentil experience. My husband is not too quick to try new things but loved the lentils. Initially I just told him it was a "new" bean burrito recipe. He thought they tasted "nutty" and liked the texture. I used all veggies from garden and instead of taco sauce used a cup of fresh homemade salsa that I made yesterday. I am sure in the winter, taco sauce will add a different twist and great flavor too. Cannot wait to try other lentil recipes too!
