  1. Heat coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place onion in skillet and cook, stirring, until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook another minute.
  2. Stir in lentils, broth, chili powder, cumin, and oregano. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until lentils are tender, about 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Combine black beans and corn in a saucepan (if using canned beans and corn, drain first). Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until heated through about 8 minutes.
  4. Spread tortilla chips on a serving platter. Spoon a layer of lentils on the chips, then a layer of black beans and corn, and then salsa. Sprinkle with shredded cheese. Serve while still warm.

Great! Made it vegetarian by using vegetable broth. Topped with sour cream and sliced olives. Yum!

Even my teenager liked these!
