This is so much better than it has any right to be, and has quickly become one of my favorite recipes! It's very friendly to dietary restrictions and easily becomes vegan. Be sure to stir in the salsa with the lentils at the end... it has a significant impact on the overall flavor and texture.

This was a very good Taco Dish. I was skeptical since it lacked meat; however it's filled with flavor and quite filling. I made a few changes to the original recipe: -I used Corn Oil since I had no canola oil. The corn oil didn't seem to conflict with the meal's harmony. -I tried some with chopped tomatoes, but it took away from the overall flavor. I'll omit chopped tomatoes in the future, or at least cook/grill the tomatoes prior. -I added cilantro. This addition made it perfect! Many Mexican-style meals call for cilantro anyway, and I intend to use it whenever I cook this meal again. One taco filled me up, and there were lots of leftovers for breakfast/lunch meals I can bring to work. When I have a cute eccentric vegetarian girl over, I'll be sure to make her this and disable her with a filled satisfied belly…that way she wouldn’t be able to escape my advancements. >:-) Overall it was a very good, low-maintenance, filling and abundant meal worth the preparation. Will recommend to friends, and especially cute eccentric vegetarian girls.

We really enjoyed this dish. I used Taco Seasoning I (AR). Easy and yummy served this with Easy Authentic Spanish Rice (AR). My lentils took about 40 minutes before they softened up. Even my kids and hubby really enjoyed these. Great for a "Meatless Monday" dinner :)
