In my Kitchen: Lentil Chili (cheap and delicious!)

If you have never tried lentils before, you are missing out! I love the peppery taste of lentils (and the price!)
Here is one of my favorite ways to prepare them.

Lentil Chili

2 cups Lentils
5 cups water
28 oz. canned tomatoes
1 bell pepper chopped
2 jalapenos chopped
1 lg. onion chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 T. Chili powder
2 tsp. Cumin
1 tsp. Oregano

Rinse the lentils and cook until soft. There will be extra water, but since this is soup, that's okay!
Add the tomatoes and veggies, and cook until the onion is soft. Add the spices to taste.
