Expert Tips

  • Do you like it spicy? If so, add 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne) along with the chili powder and cumin. You could also use hot salsa.
  • Pearl barley has had the outer bran removed and has been steamed and polished. Do not substitute instant or quick-cooking barley for the barley in this chili.
