This was a great lentil chili! I added in carrots and a little green onion. I also used cayenne pepper instead of the chili powder. And I also added in some cooked chicken because my boyfriend said he needed to have some kind of meat with his meal. Loved the recipe and will make this again!
this really is great. i used black beans in place of corn (because that's what i had on hand, but i am sure corn would be good in there, too) and garam masala instead of allspice. plus, i added some cayenne pepper and picante sauce in order to liven it up. taste explosion.
Wonderful recipe. My husband LOVED it. Its very hearty... and it makes a lot!!! I added some other beans to it. It was delicious. We will make it again and again. Thanks. :)
I added about 2 cups of trimmed tri-tip meat to this. DH thought he'd like it beter w/ two 14.t ozcans of petit cut tomatoes and only 8 oz. of tomato sauce. Otherwise, I used all the stated ingredients, but I sautéed the onlion, bell pepper and garlic before adding the rest. We liked it very much, overall. It's interesting to me that DH says he doesn' like lentils, but so far all the lentil things I've mae from Food.com recipes....he likes just fine.
This came out really well and was very easy to make.
This is an easy, very tasty recipe! I did make a few changes (just to use up what I had on hand). I used a can of petite diced tomatoes, one can of low sodium black beans, drained, a cup of diced carrots, one celery stalk, chopped, some mushrooms, and doubled the chicken stock. I sauteed the onion, pepper, carrots and celery in a little olive oil before adding the other ingredients. I didn't add the corn, although I think it would be really good, and I didn't use the tomato sauce. I think this would have been a very good dish even without my changes, and will definitely make it again. Thanks for sharing!
This was an excellent lentil chili. I gave it 4 stars because I altered the recipe slightly. I saut?ed the chopped onions and green pepper in some olive oil before adding the remaining ingredients. I upped the lentils to 1 cup and used about 2 cups more chicken broth. I simmered the mixture for 25 minutes and then added the tomato sauce. I did not add corn but I think it would be good with it. I also added salt and pepper to taste.
easy. yummy. approved by the picky family. personally i found it very tomato-y so next time i will add some sugar to offset that.
My husband and I love lentils. This chili was very tasty and full of yummy good stuff. Had to cook longer than stated time so the lentils would get tender. Thanks for a super healthy recipe.
