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 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.

I made this for some friends coming over for dinner and it was fantastic. I didn't have the chipotle so I made it without it. Kids and adults enjoyed it and everyone learned about wheat berries.

Just OK - it needed something. (Definitely salt, but even that didn't make it very interesting.) Also, it was very soupy. We ate it with warmed corn tortillas.

This was the best vegetarian chili ever!!! Rave reviews from everyone present, just the right texture, and as for being too soupy, I did not add the broth as I like mine thick. Served it with cornbread and salad for a complete meal. I would make this again and again, forget ALL of the others!
