Latin slow cooker: Super tasty pinto bean stew with jalapeño-corn dumplings

When I was about 10 years old, a friend of the family used to make me the most amazing pinto bean stew. I loved it even in the heat of the summer. It was just so flavorful and satisfying. Since then, I've had what will be a life-long appreciation for pinto bean stew. How could I not be intrigued by a slow cooker version of pinto bean stew with jalapeño-corn dumplings?

Amazing combination. This stew is healthy, nutritious, and delicious. If you are pressed for time, you can skip the dumplings, but let's hope you're not--they are amazing.
