Crockpot Vegetarian Lentil Taco Filling

A great vegetarian alternative to traditional meat filling:

In a crockpot, combine:

1 large red pepper, diced
1 c. chopped onion
1 c. dry lentils
1/2 c. brown rice
3 cloves minced garlic (I used about 1 tbsp. jarred minced garlic)
1 tbsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. salt

Pour 2 (14 oz) cans vegetable broth (I actually used chicken broth because it was what I had on hand so technically mine was not vegetarian) over.

Cover and cook on low for 10-12 hours or high for 5-6 hours. During last hour of cooking, add 1 medium yellow summer squash, diced.

This filling can be used for anything that you would use taco meat for - tacos, burritos, quesadillas, or . . .

taco salads.
