  1. Cook the onion, garlic and carrots in the olive oil over medium heat in a heavy casserole or creuset stirring frequently for about 5 minutes until the onion is transparent and carrots are soft. Add the diced tomatoes, tomato paste, tomato sauce, water, barley, corn, red pepper and beans. Also add the spices: chili powder, chipotle, cumin, oregano, cocoa powder, cinnamon, salt and pepper. Continue cooking on low heat, stirring frequently for approximately 1 1/2 hour to 2 hours or until the barley is cooked and the chili has thickened. You may need to add more water as the barley will soak up the water during cooking time. Adjust spices to your taste at the end of cooking time.
  2. Ladle into serving bowls and top with cilantro sprigs. Serve with tortilla chips or fresh baked bread or with cooked white rice.
