 This was originally contributed to the list by Ann Miner (thanks,
 Ann!). This recipe is modified to my own specifications from her
 2 1/3 cups green lentils - rinsed
 5 cups water
 4 oz. can of chopped green chilis
 16 ounces tomato sauce
 2 teaspoons ground cumin
 2 teaspoons chili powder
 2 garlic cloves - minced
 1 package taco seasoning (or about 4 tablespoons of bulk taco seasoning)
 2 tablespoons chopped onion
 Add lentils to water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes or until 
 tender, but whole.
 When lentils are done, add the rest of the ingredients and stir to mix 
 thoroughly. Pour into a baking dish (a large pyrex lasagna pan is about 
 the right size). Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
 These are great in tacos, burritos, or taco salad. The texture is pretty 
 similar to SAD taco meat, so it's a good substitution when you want 
 something besides refried beans and rice.
