Lentil burritos

Postby zelph » Fri Jan 04, 2008 12:28 pm

This one is Sarbars:

Lentil Burritos:

In the first freezer bag put:
1 cup instant rice

In the second freezer bag put:
1/2 cup dried lentils
2 Tbsp dried bell peppers
1 Tbsp dried onions
1 heaping Tbsp dried salsa

Also take:
2-4 tortillas (depending on size)
1 ounce cheddar cheese, chopped or grated.

Add 1 cup boiling water to the rice bag, stir and seal. Add 1 cup of boiling water to the lentils, stir well. Put both bags into a cozy for 10 minutes.

Make burritos with the fillings, top with cheese and roll up. Also works well as a "burrito bowl".

Serves 2, this recipe makes a lot.

Notes: Drying salsa is very easy to do. If you don't have a dehydrator, you can use 3 or 4 packets of salsa instead, McDonald's is a good source of them.

Boy, that sounds yummy. Needs some hot sauce though. How easy is it to dry bell peppers? Can you leave the outer skin on?

My guess is take the skin off like you would tomatos. Dip them in boiling water for a few seconds until you see the skins start to peel and then dunk in cold water.

I just chop the peppers then dry. Seems to work well. I dried some smoked turkey not long ago. Great change from beef or venison.

Was it sliced thin or cubed? It does sound good as a change from the usual. Good tip, thanks.

I will admit I am LAZY. Hence I bought my dried bell peppers from Harmony House Foods. You can also find them in big natural food stores in their bulk or spice sections.

My son-in-law grilles green peppers until the skin curls 1/2 way off. Peels the skin all the way off and proceeds to make a salsa of a type(Cheche?) It tasted awfull good.
