1 tbsp Chili powder
1/4 tsp Crushed red pepper
1 tsp Cumin
1/2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tbsp Garlic (crushed)
1/2 cup Lentils, raw (rinsed)
1/2 tsp Oregano, dried
1 tbsp Paprika
1/2 cup Salsa, ready-to-serve
1/8 tsp Sea salt
1 3/4 cup Water
1/4 large Yellow onion (diced)


Place olive oil in a skillet on medium heat.

Sauté the garlic and onion until soft and translucent. Add lentils and seasonings, and stir well. Add the water and bring to a boil. Reduce to medium heat and occasionally stir for 25-30 minutes, until lentils are tender and slightly soft (all of the water should be absorbed, and should not be mushy).

Stir in the salsa and heat for another 3-4 minutes.

Serve over a bed of lettuce for a taco salad or with whole grain tortillas.
