      This was so good! I only had corn meal (not the mix), so I added 1/2 cup Bisquick to the dumpling mix. Will definitely be making this again, but I think next time I'll leave out the flour, as it made the soup thicker than we normally like. Thanks for sharing!

      Great soup -- loved the cornmeal dumplings! This is a nice hearty soup with great flavor. I made as directed with one exception -- I substituted the chicken for all chorizo and I added black beans. Turned out great.

      Fantastic! Really full of flavor! It was a bit spicy for me, I think it all depends on your chorizo. I served with sour cream and avocado. I used soy chorizo (shh don't tell DH), and had to use Jiffy corn muffin mix because Martha White was not available - so I did alter the recipe to account for that. The contrast of flavors with the spicy soup and slightly sweet dumpling with the brightness of lime and cilantro. Really good! Thanks for posting.
