White Bean Chili

3 cans (15 oz.) white beans with ham or 6 cups cooked white beans and liquid (about 1 lb. dry)
1/4 cup celery, chopped
1 can (15 oz.) diced Italian flavored tomatoes
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons brown sugar
salt, pepper, and chili powder to taste
1/4 cup diced onion or reconstituted dry (1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons)

Combine all of the ingredients and heat through.

Testing comment: I soaked the beans overnight which saved a lot of time in the cooking time. We liked the taste of the chili and the brown sugar added a bit of sweetness to the chili. I added a pound of hamburger to this recipe. Our family enjoyed this chili. We will have this recipe again.
