Southwestern Bean Soup With Cornmeal Dumplings

READY IN: 10hrs 15mins
Recipe by Crafty Lady 13

I altered this recipe from my Fix - It and Forget - It cookbook. Yummy bean soup with a southwestern twist that is made in your slow cooker. The cornmeal dumplings is a wonderful addition to this soup.

This soup was super easy to make. I did not have time to make in the crock pot so I made it on top of the stove. I threw in a handful of barley, so it took about 45 minutes to cook. When I went to make the dumplings I found I was out of cornmeal, so sadly I had to pass on that part. Thanks for a good hearty soup recipe.
