Here's an easy winter warm-me-up meal. The flavorful corn dumplings cook right on top of the simmering chili.
Yield: 6 servings
High Altitude (3500-6500 ft) Drop dough by rounded tablespoonsful onto simmering chili. Cook uncovered over low heat 15 minutes. Cover and cook 15 to 18 minutes longer.
Vary the heat level in chili by adding more or less chili powder or red pepper sauce. Also, try different brands of red pepper sauce because each has its own unique flavor and “kick.”
