Active Time:  25 Minutes
Total Time:  1 Hour
  6 servings, about 1 1/2 cups each
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; there’s no need to thaw them—stir them directly into the chili.
2 tablespoons  extra-virgin olive oil
1   large yellow onion, chopped
1   large yellow bell pepper, chopped
5 cloves  garlic, minced
2 teaspoons  chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons  ground cumin
1 teaspoon  dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon  salt
1/2 teaspoon  freshly ground pepper
2 15-ounce cans  black beans, rinsed
2 14-ounce cans  no-salt-added diced tomatoes, undrained
1-2   canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, minced (see Tip)
2 cups  vegetable broth
2 teaspoons  light brown sugar
2 cups  Cooked wheat berries (see recipe link below)
Juice of 1 lime
1   avocado, diced
1/2 cup  chopped fresh cilantro

Tip: Canned chipotle peppers (smoked jalapenos) in adobo sauce add heat and a smoky flavor. Look for the small cans with other Mexican foods in large supermarkets. Once opened, they will keep for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator or 6 months in the freezer.

Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion, bell pepper, garlic, chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes. Add beans, tomatoes, chipotle to taste, broth and brown sugar. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 25 minutes.

Stir in cooked wheat berries and heat through, about 5 minutes more. (If using frozen wheat berries, cook until thoroughly heated). Remove from the heat. Stir in lime juice. Garnish each bowl with avocado and cilantro.
