Recipe

I am always on the hunt for delicious meatless taco filling since I am it's easy to get sick of black beans and corn. Recently I have fallen back in love with lentils and loved the idea of creating a taco filling with lentils, quinoa, and lots of spices. To make sure the flavors deepen, I like to cook it low and slow in the slow cooker. This ensures the taco filling is full of flavor. I also like to add some fire roasted tomatoes since they add a nice smoky note to the recipe. If you can't find fire roasted tomatoes, you could just use a little extra cumin to add plenty of smoky flavor. Wrapped up in tortillas or piled high into a burrito bowl, this is one yummy vegetarian taco filling.
