Yummy Spicy Burrito

Here's an amazing recipe I came up with, and anyone can eat it. So if you're looking for a healthy meal night, without the icky healthy taste to it that everyone can enjoy, here's my wonderful recipe that you should probably double if you're making for more than two-three people (I make this for two, and it lasts a few days, but it's good enough to eat over and over again):

1 cup brown rice
1 cup lentils
Chili Powder and Garlic Powder
World Table Roasted Tomato Chipotle Roja Salsa(Found at Walmart by the taco sauce)
Mission Wraps Jalapeno Cheddar or Sun Dried Tomato and Basil (Also found at Walmart in the bread section by bagels and such)
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
2 or 4 (per wrap) Gardein Seven Grain Crispy Tenders(This can be found at Target by Morning Star Products or even Krogers or a wholefood store) (Can be substituted for chicken if you're not a vegetarian though)

In one pan, bring two cups water to a boil. Add one cup brown rice, cover, and simmer on low heat for about 45 to 50 min. Make sure to keep covered the entire time till it hits 45 min. or it won't cook right, and if you open it up and see plump rice, it's done. In another pan, bring another two cups water to a boil. Add lentils and cover. Cook for as long as you cook rice, then drain lentils (I cook rice and lentils at the same time, in different pans). *Reason to keep in separate in pans is so that they cook fully and don't get in each other's ways, but can be added together once both are cooked.*

Once the two are combined, season with as much chili powder and garlic powder as you want, keeping in mind to keep stirring the seasonings around. Now add your shredded cheddar cheese. (If you'd like the cheese melted, put season rice and lentils in a bowl, add cheese, and heat in microwave till cheese melts)

Next, cook Gardein Seven Grain Crispy Tenders in oven as directions state. When those are done, add rice and lentil mixture onto your wraps, then add your Gardein Seven Grain Crispy Tenders, then add your salsa. Enjoy!

~If you're looking for less spiciness, choose Mission Wraps Sun Dried Tomato and Basil or regular Tortilla Wraps. Also, choose regular salsa, because chipotle is very spicy

~If you're looking for another variation, pick up World Table Salsa Verde (Basically a salsa made with tomatillas. It's one of my favorites.) And use mozzarella cheese.

~Another variation is using Ortega taco sauce, and making it taste like a taco.

~Also, Gardein is the best mock meat stuff out there. It's vegan. Plus, it's made with ingredients that are good for you. You can check Gardein out here on their website: http://www.gardein.com/index.php
