What's Cooking

Here is what everyone cooked last month.


Chili with Corn Dumplings
1 ½ lb ground beef
¾ c chopped onion
15 oz can whole kernel corn (do not drain)
16 oz can stewed tomatoes (do not drain)
16 oz can tomato sauce
2 T. chili powder
1 t red pepper sauce
1 1/3 c Bisquick original
2/3 c cornmeal
2/3 c mile
3 T chopped cilantro (we added this but I think it's just for looks so you could skip it)

Brown beef and onion in a large pot. Reserve ½ c corn and add the rest with liquid, tomatoes, tomato sauce, chili powder and pepper sauce to the beef mixture. Heat to boiling, reduce, cover and simmer 15 minutes.

Mix bisquick and cornmeal. Stir in milk and cilantro along with the ½ c corn. Drop by tablespoons onto the simmering chili. Cook uncovered over low heat 10 minutes. Cover and cook ten minutes longer.
