How to Thicken Soup

Corn dumplings made with masa harina, also called chochoyones, are popular throughout the Oaxaca region of Mexico. The indentations in the dumplings help them cook more evenly.
Corn dumplings add a hearty element to this meatless soup, chock-full of colorful vegetables. The spinach is rich in vitamin A and the peppers provide vitamin C.
