Thought it said 1-2 CANS of chipotle peppers but really it says 1-2 CANNED chipotle peppers. This was sooo good but obviously way too spicy. Added corn, extra lime juice, sour cream and cheese. Won't make that mistake next time!
Zesty Wheat Berry-Black Bean Chili
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 actually didn't include the wheat berries or the chili pepper, but it still came out pretty good. I used cayenne pepper and that gave it the perfect amount of spice! Would probably taste good with vegan sour creme on top too!
This recipe was easy to make and delicious. We are transitioning to vegetarian and for once I wasn't missing meat. Instead of Wheat Berries, I used Pearl Couscous which worked out well. Do NOT leave out the avocado even if you aren't a huge fan, it is very complimentary to the dish. I only added two chilis, but it was a bit spicy for us (and my kids), so I threw in a dollop of sour cream in their bowls for them and it cut the spice and was very tasty.
Amazing recipe - I don't have one bad thing to say about it. I made a few mods for convenience:
-Used a packet of McCormick spicy chili seasoning.
-Added a minced jalapeno for more heat (I like my chili VERY spicy)
-Omitted the avocado and added skinless rotisserie chicken breast towards the end.
-Used a can of black beans and can of chick peas.
I love this recipe. The only thing I do differently is that I use that whole can of ancho chilis for extra spice. I also used 16 ounces of dark beer instead of veggie broth. Make sure to adjust how much sugar you add if you choose to substitute beer.
