Sopa de Lentejas Rojas Picantes

Lentil soup is very easy to prepare. It is a good source of protein, calcium, folate, Vitamin A, and fiber. It is filling and delicious. I got the following recipe from a co-worker, and have tweaked it to near "perfection." "Sopa de lentejas rojas picantes" is Spanish for Spicy Red Lentil Soup.
