Spicy Bean Chili with Herb Dumplings

Teresa

Gluten Free Living – 2022

Spicy Bean Chili with Herb Dumplings is one of those comfort food recipes where we can never get enough. My husband and I both enjoy chili so much. And we love the leftovers reheated up to several days later. This fantastic recipe includes gluten free Herb Dumplings which make the chili even more irresistible, in my opinion. I know, I know. You’re probably saying to yourself, “Dumplings with chili? Not cornbread???” Yes, yes, yes!

Follow Me On Instagram!

Truth be told, I usually make chili with either cornbread or homemade rolls of some kind. But this delicious chili tastes sumptuous, savory and downright wonderful with dumplings. I mean every bite is fantastic. The dumplings are flavored delightfully and are airy and light, rather than heavy or clumpy. We loved this entree.

Most of you who follow my blog know that I’m not afraid to try new recipes. I try hundreds of them a year. Every now and then I try one that’s a real bomb. But rather than complaining to the blog host(ess) about the awful recipe, I usually set out to make it good, better or even fantastic. 🙂 In this particular case, I did an entire revamp. I turned the recipe into a chili and added a lot of new ingredients. I scrapped the awful (spit them out of your mouth) cornmeal dumplings and went back to a recipe for dumplings I already knew would work. I adjusted the seasonings in both and voila! It became a mouthwatering and irresistible entree my husband and I just loved and ate more than our share.

I made Spicy Bean Chili with Herb Dumplings gluten free, but regular flour in the dumplings will work just as well for any of you who don’t have to worry about gluten intolerance. My husband’s not crazy about a lot of gluten free stuff, but he couldn’t even tell that these dumplings used gluten free flour! 🙂 They’re seasoned so well and they’re so light and fluffy that he enjoyed them even reheated as leftovers.

This is a terrific recipe for fall, winter and spring tailgating parties, potlucks, company dinners and certainly for lunches as well as family dinner menus. While I enjoy salad as much as the next person, I have to have one hot meal every day to feel satisfied. This fantastic chili is one of those hot dishes i really enjoy. Seriously, this entree can be served all year round and everyone will still want seconds.
