Haven't tried the recipe yet, but shall! Just want to say," why not read the last sentence of step 2."
As hubby said, "That was the blandest Mexican dish I've ever had". It was just....meh. No idea how this gets 5 and 4 stars. We even added finely grated cheddar cheese to it--which helped. But it was oh-so-boring. One jalapeno in it didn't give it any real zip at all. Not a keeper. (Btw, I rarely write reviews, and signed up just to review this recipe!)
Just so so
I substituted the chicken with Adouille Cajun Style Sausages(fully cooked) and this came out ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! I also sprinkled a little cayenne pepper on the onions and doubled the dumplings. I will be adding this to my recipe binder =)
this recipe was wonderful, but 2 things kept it from getting a 5-star rating. 1, after the chicken is cooked and removed from the pan it is not mentioned again in the recipe, so i proceeded with the remainder of the instructions, put the dumplings in and the lid on (which you're not supposed to open), and lo and behold thre's the dish of chicken sitting there waiting for me. so i put it in after the fact, and that kinda sunk some of the dumplings. secondly, in all honesty, i didn't think the dumplings were very good at all. they added nothing to the soup, tasted very bland, and i'll be keeping this recipe on file, but i won't be bothering with them. the soup can totally hold its own w/o the dumplings, and it's just extra calories i don't need. but 5 stars for the soup itself!!
Can't wait to try this but the recipe doesn't say what to do with the chicken after it's cooked. I assume it goes back in the pot with the beans, corn, etc.
Very yummy. I too would make more dumplings, did not make enough.
Very tasty! Perfect for a cold, blustery, snowy winter night. Loved the dumplings especially!
My only complaint is that there were not enough dumplings for the amount of soup that this recipe makes. Went together really easy, but next time is definitely making more dumplings.
