 Lentil Chili
 (serves 6)
 2 cups lentils
 5 cups water
 28 oz canned tomatoes
 1 bell pepper, chopped
 2 jalapenos, chopped
 1 large onion, chopped
 4 garlic cloves, minced
 1 tbsp chili powder
 2 tsp cumin
 1 tsp oregano
 salt to taste
 more cayenne to taste
 Rinse the lentils and cook until soft.  There will be extra water, but
 since this is soup, that's okay.  Add the tomatoes and veggies, and
 cook until the onion is soft.  Add the spices to taste.
 As someone else pointed out, adding bulgur (or brown rice) is tasty
 and satisfying.  Add 1/2 cup of grain to the lentils and add another 1
 cup of water.
 Shredded carrots and corn are also good.  In fact, I've found that
 you can make just about any gloopy mass into chili by adding chili
 powder.  :-)
 Kidney beans are also very good in this recipe.
