Looks delicious, Carol and very welcoming on a cold night. I've been thinking of using lentils to substitute for ground beef in my Grandmother's Sloppy Joe recipe. I've used them in taco meat with good results.
Your soup looks ready to ladle and enjoy. We eat soup year 'round, and very hot days are part of life for 5 months or more. Soups and chili and stew are not saved for cooler times. They are on the table whenever we choose. Attached garage's electrical outlets help with slow cooker and electric roaster's heat. No added heat in the house except for cold days.
I have seen the Goya Ham Sazon and wondered if it was not too salty. Please let me know what else you use this seasoning mix for.
SandieI cook with very litle salt, so when I use the Goya ham seasoning, it's in lieu of any additional salt. Last night was a meat free supper (shh! DS # 1 didn't notice)so adding the ham flavor was ideal for my recipe. I also use it if I don't have a meaty ham bone for making split pea or mixed bean soup. I have also used it when making a pot of white beans aka "soup beans" in the South. We eat it like a chilli, with corn bread on the side. HTH
This reminds me of Frugal Queen's lentil soup that she posted a few weeks ago I made it, and it was wonderful! Perfect for chilly autumn evening meals!
PS: I do the same with the Goya ham seasoning. It really helps a bean or lentil soup that has very little meat in it, and then no more salt is needed.
