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. 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.

This was a great veggie chili recipe and I've tried many. I love wheat berries so this was a bonus too. I really like the texture of this chili and I used 2 chipotles, the spice was perfect. I think you can play with this recipe if you wish but it's great as is. I just stirred the cilantro into the whole pot at the end. People with a bland palate will probably not like this, or picky eaters in general.
