March/April 2007, EatingWell for a Healthy Heart Cookbook (2008)

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (287 votes)

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 was my first attempt cooking with wheatberries, and it will not be my last! They are a perfect fit for this vegetarian chili. I love the different textures each ingredient adds to the dish, as well as the colors. I added about 1/2 tsp. of coriander to the chili and omitted the brown sugar. I let the chili simmer for an hour and the flavors blended together nicely. I'm excited to add this to my chili rotation!

I had never heard of wheat berries (or tried them) until very recently and I like them so much that I have been specifically searching for recipes using wheat berries.
This chili was delicious and I will definitely make this one again!

We made this chili vega and it was easy and is wonderful . We made our own chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and when I brought it to work, converted the meat eaters to ask for the recipe. Nice!

One of Our Favorite! Tasty and Satisfying
I have made this recipe at least 5 times and my husband and I love it. A money/time saver for the chipotle peppers is to get the 2 cans of diced tomatoes with chipotles already added - found in Whole Foods and probably other health food stores. The chili is great by itself, but the cilantro, lime juice and avocado bring it to a whole new level. Hearty and satisfying. We like to eat it with a piece of buttered toast.
