Here’s a great soup I love to make on these cold blustery days. It’s anothr great recipe from the Garcia Family in Queretaro, Mexico, that I learnt while living there. It’s really easy and one of the fastest I seen so far making from scratch. It’s also very cheap if your on a budget and goes realy far. It only being two of us it’s usually around for leftovers 2-3 days. I would like to add it’s one of those foods that taste better the next day, I actually like it better the next day. Hope you enjoy and again let me know if you try it here in my comments. Also send me a pic if you like and I will publish it here, send pic to tialavoria@yahoo.com.

Ingredients:

  • 1 15.5 oz bag of Lentils
  • 1/2 lb. Bacon-cut up in 1/2″ cubes
  • 1 tspsalt
  • 2-3 Roma tomatoes-slice in 1/2 long ways then sliced into 1/2 moon
  • 1 tbsp Knorr tomato bouillon w/chcken flavor (found in Mexican food section)
  • 2-3 qts of water

Preparing:

Empty your whole bag of Lentils into a colinder, holding colinder over a pot or bowl bigger than colinder to wash the beans (beans may go thru colinder being as tiny as the are). After washing them empty into a four qrt. pot. Add 2-3 qrts. of water, 1 tsp. of salt, 1 tbsp. of tomato boullion, cut up bacon and bring to a boil. Reduce hat to medium temp until almost done, adding tomatoes and cooking about five more minutes.

Suggestions:

Garnish with chopped onion, chopped cilatro, chopped jalepeno or top it with one of our Tia Lavoria’s Famous Salsas (recomended salsa; Salsa Tomatillo).

Provecho!
