Mexi Lentil Rice

I still have to use the lentils I bought... maybe this will work for us.

Mexi Lentil Rice

this is an easy side or main dish. the cheese is optional. we eat it as a main dish. I can't remember where I got the beginning of this recipe but I have adapted it so much I don't think it would be recognized anymore. I make this in a crock pot but it could be made in an oven in a covered dish at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. I've never tried making it on low heat so I don't know how long for that.
From Recipe Zaar.
