This was wonderful. My DH who DOES NIT LIKE BEANS loved it so much he took leftovers to work this morning. The only thing I omitted was the cilantro. Just because I didn't have any. Great job.
I liked this a lot, it's good chili, and I like the lentils and barley in it! The reason I'm giving it four stars instead of five is the garlic salt. There's a fine line between just salty enough and too salty, and I feel like one tablespoon of garlic salt kicked this chili over that line. I am going to make it again, but I think that next time, I'll just add some minced garlic and skip the garlic salt. (also, step 2 says to add celery and onions, but celery isn't in the ingredient list...)
