Heat a large soup pot over medium heat for about 2 minutes. Add oil, celery, carrots, onions, peppers, garlic, chili powder and salt and sauté until veggies are soft, about 8 to 12 minutes.
Stir in tomatoes and beans. Cook 30 minutes to fully combine chili, adding water if necessary, but remember this is chili, not a soup, so it should be fairly thick. Finish with cilantro.
