Corn Chowder with Dumplings Recipe

This is a spiced-up version of my favorite corn chowder. The first time I added dumplings, my husband declared them awesome!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 3 cups frozen corn
  • 2 cups cubed peeled potatoes
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 to 3 teaspoons minced chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • 1. In a large saucepan, saute onions in oil until tender. Add the broth, corn, potatoes, cream, chipotle pepper and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 3-5 minutes.
  • 2. For dumplings, in a small bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt. Stir in milk and cheese just until moistened. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto simmering chowder.
  • 3. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center of a dumpling comes out clean (do not lift cover while simmering). Yield: 4 servings.

"I used milk instead of whipping cream (didn't have any) and mozzarella instead of cheddar (didn't have any of that either)"
