Chili Dumpling Stew

Updated on October 10, 2017

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”.


Serves 6 to 8

  • 2 1/2 cups dices and peeled potatoes (about 4 medium)
  • 1 (1lb) can red kidney beans - undrained
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp margarine
  • 1 large onion - chopped
  • 1 lb hamburger
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 can tomato rice soup (if you can't find this soup, get tomato soup and add 1/2 cup cooked rice to the recipe)

Nothing really needs to be added to this wonderful dish; however, if you are like my family, you might like to top your chili with a little sour cream and some shredded sharp cheddar cheese. Just a thought!

Enjoy your meal and Happy Cooking!

      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!
