Quick and easy. My son would have liked it to be more soup-like but I liked it just the way it was. We topped it with sour cream and served with chips. I rarely make anything exactly like the recipe but this time I did. Read More

I didn't use a pressure cooker as lentils don't take that long to cook. It wasn't anything special at all and if I ever make it again, I would add some cut up ham. Read More

Very easy and very delicious! I used PACE Brand mild piquant sauce. It also is available "spicy " but the jalapeno in the ingredient list I wanted to be sure it wasn't too spicy. It had just enough kick. This one is a keeper! Read More

I didn’t have any Picante sauce so I used medium heat chunky salsa. I used green bell peppers instead of yellow & a small can of green chilies instead of 1 jalapeño. I, also, used 1 pound of lentils instead 1 1/2 cups of lentils. It was fantastic. Everyone loved it!! I’ll make this again. Read More
