How To Make chili and dumplings

  • 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.
