Blue corn dumplings

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Blue cornmeal
2 teaspoons Baking powder
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Solid vegetable shortening
1/2 cup milk

Mix the blue cornmeal, baking powder and salt thoroughly in a bowl.

Add the shortening and work the ingredients together with a pastry cutter or fork until the mixture resembles coarse meal.

Add enough milk to make a batter of medium consistency, not too thick or too thin.

Drop batter by teaspoonfuls on top of stew or chil in a pot.

Cover the pot tightly and steam the dumplings for 15 minutes. DON'T PEEK!! The stew or chile should be kept simmering over medium-low heat during this process.

After 15 minutes, remove lid and serve the stew or chili with the dumplings.
