How to Make Chili and Dumplings

Step-by-Step

  1. In a very large skillet or saucepan, over medium heat, saute onions, garlic and green pepper in the butter, until tender. Stir often.
  2. Add ground beef and cook until completely browned. Stir and chop up the ground beef as it brownes.
  3. Now add all remaining ingredients and cook until heated through, then lower heat med/low. Stir well. Cover and cook for 1 1/2 hours.
  4. Now make the dumplings by combining all the dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Then add in the milk, shredded cheddar and beaten egg. Stir until just combined but still lumpy.
  5. Drop by the spoonful ontop of the chili. Cover and continue to cook for another 25 minutes. This makes about 8 dumplings.
  6. Spoon into serving bowls and serve warm with more shredded cheddar cheese ontop.
