Eaten this twice and loved it each time: first, a friend made it for us. So good! But very spicy. So later, when I made it myself, I only used 1 chipotle pepper (and a word to the wise: the recipe does not call for 1-2 CANS chipotle peppers, it calls for 1-2 chipotle peppers) and that was perfect. I also did not have wheat berries so omitted them and it was still good. This is my favorite chili recipe to date. Fresh, hearty, veggie, spicy.
