“I developed this recipe when raising four children on a limited budget. My family likes this better than meat tacos. It has been a hit with guests as well. Anyone who likes lentils will enjoy this variation.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook lentils with the garlic and minced onions, according to package directions until they are the consistency of refried beans.
  2. I use less water and add as I need it so I do not have to drain any water.
  3. Add packaged taco seasoning or fresh salsa and salt and pepper.
  4. The consistency should be thick.
  5. Warm tortillas.
  6. Add a spoon of lentil mixture, and your favorite garnishes.
  7. Serve and enjoy.
  8. I like to do a taco bar and let everyone make their own.
