    • cup blue cornmeal
    • 2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon solid vegetable shortening
    • 1/3 to 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 chili in a pot.

Cover the pot tightly and steam the dumplings for 15 minutes. Don't remove lid!

The stew or chili 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
