The Best Lentils Ever

We eat a lot of beans/legumes in our house, due to my meat aversion.  I REALLY like lentils because they are so incredibly versatile, but not everyone in our house is as big of a fan as I am.  Last night, however...the boys each ate a bowl of these within about 2 minutes flat.  Even B, who is possibly the slowest eater EVER (alright, he may have taken 5 minutes, but that is still a record). 

Salsa Lentils - I didn't write it down so hopefully the measurements are right!
1 c lentils (rinsed)
1-1.5 c of water
1/2 c salsa
1 quart diced tomatoes (or 2 14 oz cans)
1 bouillon cube (or use broth instead of water)
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp sugar
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 onion, chopped
Put it all in the crockpot, stir, cook on low 8 hrs.  You can serve this however you want: over rice, as a taco/burrito filling, or make it into taco salad.  If you're going to use it as a filling, you might want to use a little less liquid or vent the lid of the crockpot during the last hour. 

This was GOOD.  And I used the leftovers to make veggie burgers tonight which was tasty too...especially for leftovers!
