    windhorse23's Note:

    This is a copycat recipe. The original is available at Wegman's. I got the basics from the 3 Fat Chicks website and modified it a little bit. Very spicy. Use your food processor to do the vegetable dicing.

      Not spicy enough for us but it was still very good. I used chicken and veggie stocks instead of the water for added flavor and no celery as we were out. Sour cream was a good addition :)

      Out of this world! Even though there is no meat, nobody will miss it. The lentils make it "meaty" in texture. I used brown lentils and cut the hot sauce amount in half. While stirring in the liquids, I decided to omit 1 cup of water (just my preference) for a thicker texture. This is so great with a dallop of fat free sour cream on top. Thanx for sharing this recipe. I'll be making this often!
