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.

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.

I cannot get enough of it! All of my friends love it - and I sometimes add a few more chilis to make it that much better. It is by far the best chili I have ever made! YUM!

This chili has become a staple for us during the fall and winter months. The wheatberries add to the complexity of the dish and the chipotles in adobo sauce are integral to its flavor. An extra chipotle doesn't hurt, either! This vegetarian, whole grain chili is outstanding and we prefer it to a traditional meat-based chili.

Absolutely the best chili I have ever made. It has now taken top spot in my chili repertoire and has beaten out all my meat based chili recipes! My family loves it and made the vegetarians very happy. Thank you for the recipe.
