Cristina - You out there? Need lentejas recipe

Neta | Mar 23, 2005 08:15 PM

I need help! I want to recreate some lenten dishes for Good Friday. I know it's late but some last minute plans changed and I'm the designated cook now.
My mom used to make lentejas and tortas de camaron with a pipian sauce on Good Friday. I remember the lentejas had lentils, carrots diced, I think diced potatoes and some tomatoes. Can anyone give me a recipe that they really like?

Also, I want to make pipian and I think it uses raw pumpkin seeds and chile??? My family doesn't really care for the tortas de camaron. I was thinking of doing something else like tuna patties mixed with mashed potatoes or maybe crab? Any ideas? They will be greatly appreciated.
