Very yummy. I used vegetable broth in place of chicken and kidney beans in place of black because that's what I had on hand. I didn't add the chedder to the dumplings as I didn't think it was necessary but rather served the soup topped with the chedder cheese instead. Also great with a dollop of sour cream. Oh and I cooked for an hour on the stove and the flavors were well blended - no need for the crockpot. Thanks for this really simple recipe.
I used this recipe for our Sunday dinner. My whole family enjoyed it, including teenagers! I used Jiffy cornbread mix (as directed on box)w/cheddar cheese, in lieu of the dumplings. The cornbread was somewhat soggy on the bottom, however no one seemed to mind. Also, I added some cajun seasoning to spice it up a notch & used half the amount of dried cilantro instead of fresh. I will definately be adding this recipe to our menu! Next time I'll probably make some white rice to go with it... Thanks
Didn't make the soup but used the dumpling recipe with another basic bean soup. They were really tasty and very easy to mix up. Will try them again, maybe with chili next time.
