  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. To prepare dumplings: Combine masa harina, ½ cup broth, cheese, 2 tablespoons oil, ¼ teaspoon cumin (or chili powder) and salt in a medium bowl. Roll the dough into 18 round dumplings, using a scant 1 tablespoon for each.
  2. To prepare soup: Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and cumin (or chili powder) and cook until soft, about 4 minutes. Stir in broth, tomatoes with their juices, chicken, corn and chipotle to taste. Bring to a boil over high heat.
  3. Add the dumplings and zucchini. Reduce heat to medium, cover and cook until the dumplings and zucchini are tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Add lime juice. Serve the soup topped with cilantro, with lime wedges on the side, if desired.
  • To make ahead: Prepare dumplings (Step 1) and refrigerate for up to 1 day.
