Buffalo Chicken Chili

adapted by There's Always Thyme to Cook

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I used already ground chicken)
2 large carrots
3 stalks celery
1 large red pepper
5 cloves of garlic
5 tablespoons of chili powder
2 tablespoons ground cumin
1 tablespoon paprika
1/2 cup Frank’s Hot Sauce
2 (15 oz) cans tomato sauce
1 (15 oz) diced tomatoes
1 (15 oz) black beans, drained
1 (15 oz) chili beans in sauce (do not drain)
salt and pepper to taste

Put chicken breasts in food processor to grind up – if you can find ground chicken breast, you can use that too.  Heat oil and add ground chicken and cook about 10 minutes on medium heat until no longer pink.  Rinse out processor and add carrots, celery, garlic and red pepper and puree.  Add to chicken mixture and cook about 5 minutes until vegetables start to soften.

Next add the rest of the ingredients, put stove on simmer for 1 hour.
