Yummy Soup in the Crockpot

From my good friend, Grayson:

Two 15 oz cans black beans, rinsed and drained
One 4.5 oz can chopped roasted green chiles w/ juice
One can Ro-Tel tomatoes and chiles w/ juice
One 14.5 oz can petite diced tomatoes w/ juice
One 11 oz can yellow corn, drained
1/2 small onion, chopped
One teaspoon garlic powder
One teaspoon chili powder
One teaspoon cumin
1/2 cup beef or chicken broth
shredded cheddar cheese
sour cream
corn chips

Add all ingredients (except cheese and sour cream) to crockpot. Stir to mix well, and then taste for salt & pepper. Add salt/pepper till taste is right (I added 1/2 tsp of kosher salt). Then cover and cook on LOW for 6-7 hours. Add more broth to thin out, if needed. Serve in bowls topped with shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream. Serve corn chips on side if desired.
***We made this tonight and it was PERFECT. It has been cold and rainy here and we have all been sick in this house. The last thing I wanted to do was fuss with cooking a meal. The only thing I would've probably changed about this yummy recipe is (per my husband's request) added some shredded pork. We baked some corn bread muffins to go with this and even my 2 year old boy ate it!
