I have tried wheat berries before, but never cooked with them myself. They are so easy and delicious. I love the texture they give this chili. And the chipotle peppers give this chili the right amount of kick. Great chili.
Zesty Wheat Berry-Black Bean Chili
This rib-sticking chili offers a hearty mix of wheat berries, beans, peppers and onion. Feel free to add an additional chipotle pepper to crank up the heat in this one-pot meal. Cooked wheat berries will keep for up to 1 month in your freezer and there's no need to thaw them; just stir them directly into the chili.

This was delicious! The wheat berries (which i never had before) were so good and loved the texture. The chipotle peppers in Adobo sauce was amazing , and i love hot stuff, so if you're not a fan of spicy foods, be sure to only use one can and it's perfect. I love this vegitarian chili. I actually am now watching what meats I eat.
This was delicious. Be aware that the chipotle chilis from the can are very hot so go easy if you do not like searing your mouth. This makes a lot of chili. We did not use lime but the avocado and cilantro were key.

Delicious! First time using wheat berries and the peppers in adobo sauce and now I am a big fan of both. This recipe had a wonderful "rounded" flavor and vegan friendly! Served with PPK's vegan cornbread. Thank you recipe developer for a great meal!
We love this chili at our house full of die-hard meat eaters. It is very well balanced between heat & hearty. The lime juice & avocado lighten it upu perfectly making it very flavorful without being overly filling.
