Note: This was so delicious, quick to throw in the crockpot, and vegetarian to boot! Great for a quick, inexpensive meal.
1/2 cup rice
3/4 cup lentils*
1 can Rotel (or 1 15oz can of petite diced tomatoes + 1 4oz can of green chilies)
3 cups of water
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1) Rinse and drain lentils
2) Put all ingredients in your crockpot
3) Cook on high for 3 hours
4) Serve hot in a bowl or over tortilla chips "nacho style". Top with cheese and/or sour cream.
5) Dig in!
*When cooking lentils in the crockpot, they should be cooked on high for a short period of time. If you want to modify this recipe to cook on low for 8 hours, then pre-cook the lentils.
