  1. Heat the olive oil in a Dutch oven or large wide pot over medium-high heat. Add the celery, onion, poblano pepper, carrots, ½ teaspoon salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables have softened, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, cumin, garlic, tomato paste, sugar and cook, stirring, about 2 minutes. Remove to a small bowl and set aside.

  3. Return the vegetable mixture to the pot and add the diced tomatoes, all the beans, green chiles and chicken broth. Continue cooking at medium-high and bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low and simmer until the flavors have melded, about 30 minutes.
