Lentils and Brown Rice for Tacos
1 cup lentils
4 cups water
1 t salt
1 sweet onion, chopped very small
1 lb. hamburger (or less, the meat adds flavor)
2 cups cooked brown rice
¼ c taco seasoning
In a medium sauce pan combine lentils, water, salt and chopped onion. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 40 minutes. When lentils are just about done cook and brown hamburger in a large frying pan. When the hamburger is completely cooked add all the lentils (liquid and all), the rice and the taco seasonings. Let this simmer about 5 to 10 minutes to blend flavors and reduce liquid a little.
Serve this in tortillas along with shredded cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, salsa and sour cream and enjoy!!
