Corn Chowder with Dumplings

This is a spiced-up version of my favorite corn chowder. The first time I added dumplings, my husband declared them awesome! —Shannon Kohn, Simpsonville, South Carolina

  • Makes
    4 servings

Ingredients

  • 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
  • CHEDDAR CORNMEAL DUMPLINGS:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a dumpling comes out clean (do not lift cover while simmering).
Editor's Note
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

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

    This is probably my favorite chowder. My mother made this just to try it out and we couldn't stop eating it. I thought I was going to explode! Thanks so much for adding such a great recipe to our family cook books.
