Cover and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender.
Drain lentils; set aside.
Meanwhile, stack tortillas; wrap in foil.
Bake in a 350° oven about 10 minutes or until warm. (Or just before filling, microwave tortillas, covered with a paper towel, on 100% power [high] about 1 minute.)

Lightly coat a large skillet with cooking spray.
Preheat over medium heat.

Remove from heat.
Stir in lentils, about half of the undrained tomatoes, 3/4 cup of the cheese, the salt, and, if desired, hot pepper sauce.
Divide the vegetable mixture among warm tortillas; roll up tortillas.
Place tortillas, seam sides down, in the prepared baking dish.
Lightly coat tops of tortillas with cooking spray.
Bake in a 350° oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until enchiladas are heated through and tortillas are crisp.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan heat the remaining undrained tomatoes.
Spoon the tomatoes over enchiladas.
Top with the remaining cheese.
