  • In a medium-sized skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat. Sauté the onion, carrot, and bell pepper until softened (about 5 to 7 minutes).
  • Coat the inside of a 4-quart slow cooker crock with 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
  • Transfer the sautéed onions, carrot, and bell pepper to the slow cooker; then add the garlic, corn, pinto beans, and chilies.
  • Stir in the vegetable stock, cilantro, cumin, salt, and black pepper.
  • Cover and cook on the low heat setting for about 5 hours.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and baking soda, and mix well. Add the olive oil and the milk, and mix until just combined.
  • On a lightly floured surface, form the topping into a shape similar to that of the slow cooker. Either roll out the dough with a floured rolling pin or use your hands to press the dough into the proper shape.
  • Place the crust on top of the ingredients in the slow cooker. Turn the heat setting to high, cover, and cook for 1 hour.
