The spices brought the ingredients from their original state to a mediocre chili flavor...maybe it needs more salt....or maybe the sugar I left out would be just the thing to give it some depth. Definitely can't leave out the cilantro and avocado.
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.

My entire family loves this! Added butternut squash in last batch...highly recommend. It add another layer of flavor and thicken the sauce.
I absolutely love this recipe—the smokiness, the spice, the depth of flavor. It is easy to prepare and is delicious with diced avocado added as garnish.
Even non-vegan eaters loved this. :)
This was really good. Although I did tweak it for nutrition reasons. My tweaks: Sugar is not needed at all in this recipe so I didn't use it to make it healthier. I lowered the salt content by using a little less than 1/4 tsp of sea salt. If I think about it I prob. could have gone with out it. I used long grain brown rice instead of wheat berry to keep it wheat free.
