      Loved this recipe ! It was hearty and tasted just like the lentejas my mom used to make and she's from Jalisco, Mexico!

      I'm sorry, but I really wanted to be able to give this a higher rating. I made the vegetarian version of this recipe and hoped that by adding an ordinate amount of salt and pepper that it wouldn't be bland. I found that I had to keep adding and adding not only salt, but numerous spices and seasonings in order to give it any flavor at all - onion salt, garlic salt, chili powder, and yes, even cumin - anything to make it work, because I hate giving low ratings on recipes. I'm willing to admit that being an American, and a Californian to boot, my palate has been way too overstimulated over the years by Tex-Mex, so perhaps it's difficult for me to appreciate authentic Mexican cuisine. However, I think there needs to be a few more spices as well as specific salt and pepper amounts in the ingredients list in order to make this soup more flavorful.

      You are so right! Cumin has no place in most truly Mexican dishes. I love the spice, but I find that Mexican recipes written by non-Mexicans always include it in huge quantities. Any way, your lentil soup is superb, truly delicious! Thank you for posting.
