Mexican Mushroom Chili

This vegetarian mushroom chili is great to serve on cold winter nights or brisk fall afternoons.


* OR 2 1/2 teaspoons chili powder plus 1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle chile


  1. Bring 4 cups of water to boil in a large saucepot. Add barley, turn heat down and simmer 30 – 40 minutes or until cooked through. Drain any excess liquid; partially cover to keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook 2 minutes. Add mushrooms, seasonings, salt and black pepper; continue to cook 4 – 5 minutes. Stir in peppers and chiles; cook for an additional 3 – 4 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  3. Stir in all remaining ingredients except barley. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 – 25 minutes or until flavors are melded, stirring after 15 minutes to prevent sticking.
