Joyce's Lentil Chili

1 c lentils
2 1/2 c water
1 tsp salt
1 15 oz can tomato sauce
1 15 oz can stewed tomatoes
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 clove garlic, pressed
1 tsp oregano
1 lg onion, minced and sauteed
opt.- 1 lb ground beef, cooked and drained (if you add beef, saute the 
onion with the beef)
opt.- 1 can kidney or black beans

Bring water and lentils to boil, then cook at medium for 20-30 minutes, 
until the lentils are softened. Add tomato sauce and stewed tomatoes, 
chili powder, salt, garlic, and oregano, then the onion and beef, and 
extra beans. (I also like to add a little bit of cumin and a pinch of 
baking cocoa.) Turn down to medium low and simmer for 1 hour. Really 
good with cornbread, even better the next day!
