What are wheatberries? We asked ourselves the same thing – so here’s the skinny: wheatberries are the whole grain form of wheat, the whole, complete grain before it’s undergone any processing. A fantastic source of potassium, iron and fiber, wheatberries   add a unique texture to this flavor-packed chili recipe. This hearty, colorful one pot meal is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
