  1. In a 31/2- or 4-quart crockery cooker combine water, beans, undrained tomatoes, corn, carrot, onion, undrained chili peppers, bouillon granules, chili powder, and garlic.
  2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 10 to 12 hours or on high-heat setting for 5 to 6 hours.
  3. For dumplings, in a medium mixing bowl stir together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and pepper. In a small mixing bowl combine egg white, milk, and oil. Add to flour mixture; stir with a fork just until combined.
  4. Drop dumpling mixture into 6 mounds on top of the bubbling soup.
