I made these for some ladies last week and they all wanted the recipe so I guess everyone else loves them as much as we do. We don’t really keep tortillas on hand anymore so we normally eat this on nachos or in a lettuce wrap.I assure you these are great in over stuffed burritos too.
I throw these together with ingredients that are already cooked. I usually make a big batch of quinoa and lentils on a slow day so I can enjoy these when I don’t have a lot of time to cook.
- 2 c cooked quinoa
- 2 c cooked (brown or green) lentils
- 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp cumin
- 4 oz tomato sauce
- salt and pepper to taste
- crushed red pepper (optional more spice)
- If quinoa and lentils are cold heat in microwave or on stove until warm.
- Mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
Serve this on nachos, in tacos or a burrtito. It’s also great on a baked potato. It can be kept warm in the oven or a crockpot until ready to eat. This would fit perfectly with the Faux Cheese Sauce, Unfried Beans, and Mexican Rice. This recipe is pretty mild since I serve it to company and kids often. Feel free to spice it up!
If your family is not following a plant-based diet this recipe could be added to your traditional tacos to make them healthier, more filling, and more frugal.
