Brown the beef over medium heat. (this is optional, you can place ground beef uncooked directly into slow cooker)
Place the beef in a slow cooker, mixing in onion, celery, green bell pepper, garlic, tomato puree, kidney beans, and cannellini beans (you can drain and rinse if you feel strongly about it).
Season with chili powder, salt, basil, oregano, black pepper, and hot pepper sauce.

Garnish with cilantro, sour cream, and nacho chips
