Delicious, easy recipe! A really satisfying meal for a chilly night. I added a 1/2 t. of dried oregano, 1/2 a bay leaf and black pepper. The dumplings turned out nice and light and I added some garlic powder, oregano and black pepper to them. I topped our servings with grated cheddar, a dollop of sour cream and some chopped cilantro. Thanks for sharing this keeper recipe!
Absolutely delish! Loved this hearty, southwestern-flavored soup -- it has all the things we love and the best thing of all -- it cooks in the slow cooker. I used some organic beef broth vs. the bouillon granules and I also added a can of rotel tomatoes and green chilies in addition to the 4 oz. of green chilies just to give it a little "kick". Will definitely make this again! Made for PRMR, March, 2013.
