Barley Chili

What you need: 

1/3 cup barley
1 tablespoon oil
6 cloves garlic, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
3 tomatoes, chopped or 1 (15 ounce) can chopped tomatoes
1 jalapeno pepper, chopped
1 (15 ounce) can beans

What you do: 

1. Simmer barley in 4 1/2 cups water for 45 minutes. After 30 minutes have passed, get a large frying pan, add oil, then garlic and onion.
2. Simmer for 5 minutes. Add the green pepper and simmer 3 minutes more.
3. Add the rest of ingredients and the drained barly. Simmer that for 20 minutes covered and 10 minutes uncovered.
To serve a group, double the tomatoes, beans, and barley. I love barley and use it every chance I get! This takes a while to make but is really no effort.

I bet this would taste good with other veggies too, I'll have to try it this weekend with some corn and carrots in it!
