For those who can't eat red meat, try this.
In a small saucepan, heat tomato juice over medium heat until it boils. Remove from heat and add cracked wheat. Cover and let stand 15 minutes.
In a large Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Add celery, carrots, and tomatoes, mashing them with the back of a spoon, with their juices. Cover and cook until celery and carrots are almost tender, about 20 minutes.
Add pinto beans, cracked wheat, chicken, green chilies, chili powder, cumin, oregano, black pepper, and beer. Simmer partly covered, for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to keep cracked wheat from sticking. Season with salt to taste.
