Zesty Wheat Berry-Black Bean Chili

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

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (287 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.

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.

All of us, 15 yr old son to my mother (age unspecified) loved it. Tasty, easy to make, and enough different to be interesting but not so different it was wierd. I'm making it for dinner on New Year's Eve

I am not normally a vege chili fan but this has made me a convert. The flavor had a lot of depth. The texture from the wheat berries made it feel very hearty. The best part is how easy it is and how quickly the dish comes together.
