 Serving suggestion: Without tortillas over a bed of Carolina brown rice  My comments: At times. I can be a little carb adverse, so I cooked some rice to serve if tortillas were not what I was craving. This mixture works in a tortilla and also works in the very trendy grain bowls...Sumptuous! As with everything lentils, they're the best the day after!
