Lentils

This is a favorite around here, so I decided to share it with you guys. I was scared of lentils at first but after trying them, at my mother-in-laws, on my husbands behalf I had to come up with my own way of fixing them, so if you are “scared” just try it I promise you will love it!
Ingredients:
2 cups lentils
2tlbs. olive oil
2 small onions chopped
4 small garlic cloves chopped
1 can Rotel tomatoes (or any chopped tomatoes)
handful of cilantro leaves
10 cups water
salt to taste
8-10 slices of bacon
1 can green chilies
1. heat oil in soup pot, add onion and garlic cook till tender.
2. Add all remaining ingredients, undrained, except bacon.
4. Bring to a boil, meanwhile cook bacon stripes until crispy.
5. Reduce heat and simmer loosely covered, add bacon in pieces. cook for 30-45 minutes.
Serve over rice or as a soup.
Garnish with a Mexican cheese and sliced avocados for a richer taste.
