This sounds so good. Could you recommend how I would do it without the crock pot? I don't own one unfortunately.

You know Babe I was never a lentil person until my MIL made a Portuguese soup with them. Now I can't get enough.

With this recipe you can substitute another bean. I use the same seasonings and switch between the lentils or use pinto beans.1 lb for the large crock. I bet it would be very nice using red beans. Both ways the outcome of the recipe reminds me of Dennison's chili. You can cook the liquid down a bit and use it to make chili for nacho's. I'll have it on a chili dog any day!

* Have to make a correction with that recipe. It was too late for me to edit.

After you add the lentils back to the crock with the other spices. Depending on what you preference is at the time. Soup or chili ?... Add just a little more water to the crock.

The Paprika, and black pepper. I sprinkle on the Paprika. Make it look good. About 2 Teaspoons in all. Add a few pinches of fresh ground black pepper.

Cayenne? Go easy on that. It averages out to 1 Teaspoon at my house. My guys like spicy.. I'd start gingerly adding it a little at a time. It has a kick to it using 1 teaspoon. Just so you know. I warned ya..
It's great if you have a chest cold. It really warms you up.

I made a crock of this yesterday. Thought it would be great for dinner tonight. Went to get it from the fridge this morning. It's gone! I should have known better. A crock of that never lasts the day around here.

You can cook them in a large pot on your stove top.
Keep an eye on the water level. You might have to add more as the lentils cook. When the lentils are done. Follow the rest of the steps. It should work out just fine.
