Just a quick and tasty update to my post about Thai Chicken Coconut Milk Soup. I'm sure you recall how much I raved about it.

It was so good that we decided to make it again - this time we had the gumption to spruce it up even more. So the red-head dropped some dumplings into it at the end and it tasted even better.

She took your basic dumpling recipe (flour, baking powder, salt, milk), but used coconut milk instead of regular, then also added some diced jalapenos. Holy wow, those were quite simply the tastiest dumplings ever - and really complimented a light-ish soup, making it a moderately hearty meal. This got us to thinking, dumplings really could be modified to match any soup. Could Chili and dumplings be in our future?

Here are some pics of this updated yumminess...

There was also some fresh cilantro in those dumplings, which had been minced for a garnish but I decided to use it in the dumplings instead and garnish with jalapenos and lime juice:)! They actually were quite yummy...light and airy and just slightly doughy. Mmmmmm! The hubby didn't mention that we didn't have any leftovers;)!
