I’ve blogged about this recipe before. This link in blue should take you to the recipe on allrecipes.com
Tasty Lentil Tacos might sound like an oxymoron but they really are good! Yes, the texture is different than meat but I think with the taco seasoning, it tastes identical to meat tacos.
The extra lean pure ground beef I prefer from Walmart is about $8 a pound now.
Lentils are about $1.25 a pound, and if you cooked the whole pound, it would yield a lot more than 1 pound of meat.
So, I cooked up a batch of lentil tacos and we enjoyed them for 2 days.
The first night we had them in taco salad bowls. The second meal, we had rice and taco bowls with which ever toppings we preferred.
If you want to see the lentil taco filling up close…..
These are the taco bowls we have occasionally- they are in the refrigerated section.
I like them really crunchy and bake longer than the packaging suggests
Lentil tacos won’t fool very particular eaters but they are delicious, quick to cook and thrifty
