To use a slow cooker, combine everything in the pot, and cook on HIGH for the first hour; then turn the temperature down to LOW, and cook 7 more hours. Omit the corn...might want to double the beans or add more celery to make up for it.

Cooking spray
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
1 1/4 cups sliced carrot
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
2 teaspoons sugar
1 (16-ounce) package frozen shoepeg white corn
1 (15-ounce) can red beans or kidney beans, drained
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained
1 (14.5-ounce) can Mexican-style stewed tomatoes with jalapeño peppers and spices, undrained
1 (14.5-ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes, undrained
1 (4.5-ounce) can chopped green chiles

Place a large Dutch oven coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion, carrot, and garlic; sauté 5 minutes. Stir in broth and remaining ingredients; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 2 hours.
