  • 1 tablespoon chorizo seasoning or taco seasoning (or homemade spice blend)
  • Corn or flour tortillas, lightly warmed
  • Additional taco fillings like tomatoes, pickled red onions, jalapeños, avocado, limes, and cilantro


  1. Add lentils, water or broth, and seasoning of choice to a large saucepan and bring to a rolling boil.
