Southwestern Lentils

Total time: 40 minutes
     I had something similar to this in a restaurant in San Antonio, Texas.  I don't remember the name, and I never got the recipe.  This is as close as I get to a return trip.  Make them as hot as you like.  I use the tiny, green lentils de Puy, but you can use the larger brown ones.  Do not use the red ones, they get too mushy..
