Ground Chicken Chili

First time I've ever made chili and I think it's going to be pretty darn good...

1 lb ground chicken
1 can red kidney beans
1 can pinto beans
1/2 large yellow onion (chopped)
1 stalk celery (chopped)
2 small cans tomato paste + 2 cans water
15 oz tomato sauce
Garlic (minced)
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
olive oil

I'm horrible at measuring so these measurements are guesstimates based off a few recipes I researched.

Saute onion, celery, and red pepper flakes in olive oil (a couple tablespoons) until tender

Add ground chicken and garlic and cook until chicken is no longer pink

Meanwhile, rinse the beans (you can choose any beans you want).

Once chicken is cooked through, add the beans, tomato sauce, tomato paste, water, and chili powder.

The recipes all say to cook until heated through but I went ahead and simmered for about 40 minutes, while I cooked up some basmati rice to go along with it!
