Chili Dumpling Stew

Foods Little Hug

Comfort Food: Everyone needs a good dose of it and it doesn’t matter what the reason may be. Growing up in our house, the comfort food of choice was always Chili Dumpling Stew. This delectable beef and potato mixture has been a favorite ever since I was a little girl and now it has become a favorite to my children as well. There is nothing better to warm your belly and soothe your soul than a bowl of Chili Dumpling Stew and some hot Corn Bread muffins. Call it “foods little hug”.

Thanks! You are going to love it! My 21 year old has been requesting it for his birthday dinner since he was 10!. He adds sour cream and cheese - and of course - corn muffins with butter!
