Recipe

I have always loved the combination of lentils and black beans, but surprisingly it isn't one I see often in recipes. This slow cooker recipe brings those two healthy, fiber filled ingredients together with a slew of Mexican spices. It makes a delicious dish on it's on, is perfect for tacos and burritos, and if you prefer a stew you can add some extra broth. You can also incorporate more veggies. Hearty greens like kale or chard make great additions as do starchier veggies like squash and sweet potatoes.

    While I liked this recipe overall, my slow cooker must cook a lot faster/hotter than this recipe. My lentils got a bit mushy/burnt on the bottom. I'll definitely adjust the cooking in the future!
