This sounds so yummy! I haven't tried it yet, but with the weather cooling down, it's high up on my list.

- 1 (15 ounce) can black beans or 1 (15 ounce) can pinto beans, rinsed and drained

- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 2 garlic cloves, minced

- In a slow cooker or crock pot combine beans, water, tomatoes, corn, carrot, onion, undrained chili peppers, bouillon, chili powder and garlic.
- Cover and cook on low 10 to 12 hours.
- Can be put in at night and let cook overnight or on high for 4 to 5 hours.
- For dumplings, in a small bowl stir together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt and pepper.
- In a medium bowl, combine egg white, milk, and oil.

- Stir with a fork just until combined.
- Turn crock pot to high and drop the dumpling mixture from a rounded teaspoon to make about 8 dumplings on the soup.
- Cover and cook for 30 minutes.
This is a good filling soup for a cold day. The seasonings are tasty but not spicy. The only change I made was to add a pound of browned ground beef to the recipe (DH won't go "meatless"). I left this in the crockpot all day so supper was ready when we were.
