One of my new favorite non meat dishes is lentil tacos. One pound of brown lentils made the same way as one pound of ground beef produces more lentils tacos than beef tacos. One pound bag of brown lentils will serve about fifteen tacos. One pound of ground beef will only serve eight to ten tacos. Lentil "taco" meat has been served in corn, flour, corn/flour mix, and spinach tortillas, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and with or without rice/lettuce/salsa/cilantro/sour cream/avocado. Lentil "taco" meat has never been served with nachos.
Normally nachos are: chips, beans, rice, meat, cheese, cold toppings. For lentil nachos, the lentils needed something to secure to the chip. Therefore, nachos were: chips, lentils, rice, cheese, cold toppings.
Scaled for Likability: Good
Not quite the same as messy beef nachos, the lentil lack fat to combine the toppings together and still fell off the chip when nachos were pulled apart. Nachos without beans are lacking and lentil tacos are never served with beans and they are beans themselves. Would these be eaten again? Yes, but they would be served as a lentil/rice/cheese mixture that the chips are then dipped into and without cold toppings.
