Celebrate Taco Tuesday by building your own taco bar with this quick and easy recipe. The filling—a combination of lentils, refried beans, and seasonings—takes only about 20 minutes to make, and while it’s simmering, you can set the table with all your favorite taco fixings. Leftovers make a great next-day lunch rolled into tortillas or piled onto a big tossed salad. Prep tip: Wear gloves and be careful not to rub your face when working with fresh hot chiles, which contain a spicy, burning compound that can stick to your skin.
