A Mexican inspired soup that's packed full of protein. Lentils are simmered with tomato, okra and potatoes in a seasoned chicken stock. Serve for lunch or dinner.
If you can get your hands on tinned nopales (prickly pear cactus), use this instead of okra.
Excellent recipe. I omitted the potatoes and added one small Mexican squash instead. I only used a half pound of lentils also as there are only five of us to feed. Thank you for sharing. - 29 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

Just made this soup.. even though it may sound horrible..it is delicious! I added a small can of tomato sauce in mine , that only added more flavor and hardly ANY Calories.. I did only 1/2 pound of lentils and cut the recipe in half since it is only my husband and myself.. It will be delicious with a piece of cornbread. - 27 Jan 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
