"This recipe started out as an ooops... and ended as a new and wonderful dish! Even my husband, a bona fide meat eater loved it! It is vegetarian, but adapted easily to vegan. Please don't let the long list of ingredients scare you... it's an easy recipe! Cooking times are an estimate.. I don't usually pay attention to the time."

"This is a terrific recipe. I made these for dinner last night for a friend and she and my husband both loved them. Like another reviewer, I used the spinach uncooked and added jack cheese and fresh tomatoes. This is a great recipe for vegetarians or meat eaters--they are so filling and delicious you don't miss the meat at all. The avocado sour cream is delicious and really takes these tacos over the top. I would highly recommend this recipe. Thanks for posting GertieGirl!"
"I made these because I had bought whole wheat tortillas on sale and I wanted something new to do with them. The tacos were very good and very easy to make. The high light of the dish was the avocado sour cream which I made with fat free sour cream and to which I added some chopped fresh cilantro. I topped the lentils with raw spinach (decided against cooking it), diced tomatoes, about a tsp of salsa, a little bit of monterey jack cheese, and a tbsp of the sour cream. I love that I have so much left over!"
"Great tacos! I followed the recipe pretty closely...I refried the lentils all at once (not in 2 batches) and didn't drain them on towels. Also, I just made a 1/2 recipe of the avocado sour cream. I was pleasantly surprised by how flavorful and satisfying this recipe was (sure, I like lentils, but they're not usually too exciting). This made more than 6 servings for me, too, which I'm very happy about. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe...it's a keeper!"
"Very tasty. This is the first time I have had "refried lentils" and we quite enjoyed this. Took a long time to make, but worth it. Next time I think we'll try it without the egg. Loved the addition of the cooked spinach and the avocado sour cream- great touch! Thanks for sharing this recipe! Leftover lentils were tasty with melted cheese."
