In a medium saucepan, combine the lentils and three cups of water over medium-high heat.
Bring to a boil, decrease the heat, and simmer, uncovered, for 15 to 25 minutes, or until the lentils are just tender but not at all mushy.
Meanwhile, add the walnut pieces, sun-dried tomatoes, paprika, garlic powder, coriander, oregano, cumin, thyme, sea salt, and cayenne pepper, and cinnamon to the bowl of a large food processor.
Once the lentils are ready, strain off any excess water and add them to the bowl of the food processor, too.
Pulse several times, or until the sun-dried tomatoes and walnuts are finely chopped and the mixture resembles a moist crumble.
Serve the chorizo on its own, in salads, or in tacos, burritos, tamales, etc.
