Zesty Wheat Berry-Black Bean Chili

March/April 2007, EatingWell for a Healthy Heart Cookbook (2008)

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (270 votes)

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 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.

I made this chili having never cooked with chipotle peppers before. I like spicy food, and I only used 1 can of peppers but this was so spicy I could not eat it. I made a second batch without the peppers and combined the two, and it was still hot. I like the flavors and all the ingredients, especially the wheatberries & avocado. I would have rated this higher if it weren't for the spice factor.
