Lentil Chili-YUM, YUM!

October 9, 2013

This recipe came from The Hillbilly Housewife. It is so good, and my kids actually ask for it. You can serve it with sour cream, cheese, tortilla chips, crackers, cornbread, or over rice. It is also good with or without hamburger added.


Lentil Chili

  • 1 1/4 cups dry lentils
  • 4 cups tap water
  • 2 T oil or bacon grease(I don’t use either)
  • 1 to 2 T dry onions(I use onion powder)
  • 3 beef bouillon cubes(I leave these out)
  • 15 oz can tomatoes( I use 1 pint canned tomatoes)
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • Dash hot pepper flakes or Tabasco sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Place the lentils and the water in a large pot. Put the pot on the stove and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat so that the lentils are simmering gently. Cook for 30 minutes. Do not add the other ingredients until after the lentils have cooked. If the lentils begin to get dry, or if their water boils away then add more water. You want the lentils to remain juicy while they cook. When your 30 minutes are up, add all of the remaining ingredients. Simmer the chili for 15 to 20 minutes and serve with crackers or cornbread or over rice.
