This was terrific. Flavours were marvelous. Used green lentils and it was almost 45 minutes before they were tender -- I don't know about lentils, would other colours be more tender more quickly? Used a red and yellow pepper - lovely colours. Served with the homemade tortilla chips (easier to make than I expected -- I don't deep fry things); yoghurt, Monterey jack cheese and slices of lime. Husband said "feel free to make this any time!!"
Great flavors, and a healthier take on the original! I used ground beef instead of sausage, but added lots of spices to make up for it. Would definitely make this again! So tasty and very filling; much heartier than traditional tortilla soup thanks to the lentils. This is now my favorite red lentil soup recipe!
