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.

I add a cup of diced butternut squash and 1 T of smoked paprika to this recipe. I also use 1/2 red pepper and 1/2 yellow pepper for more color.

Super delish and super easy. Took leftovers to work and after one whiff my coworkers wanted a sample. Have shared the recipe a bunch.

I LOVED this wheat berry chili. Great flavor and texture!!! I cooked the wheat berries a few weeks ago and put them in the freezer. Then I added them to the recipe at the end. Quick healthy weeknight meal. Give it a try!!!

This chili is our new favorite. I have made this for potlucks and for co-op food exchanges and get raves everytime! The fresh cilantro is a must for best flavor. The cooked wheat berries are just an added wonderfulness. My husband said this recipe could win a blue ribbon at a chili cook-off!

This was not exceptional and is not a recipe I will choose to repeat.
