Heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and celery; cook 4 to 5 min., until onion begins to brown. Stir in eggplant; cook 4 min., or until golden. Add garlic and jalapeños, stir through 1 min. Transfer vegetables to bowl. Set aside.
Add remaining 1 tbsp (15 mL) oil to saucepan over medium heat. Add ground beef and cook 5 min., or until no longer pink, breaking up pieces with a wooden spoon. Drain fat from saucepan. Mix chili powder, cumin, pepper and salt into meat. Add tomatoes, kidney beans, broth and cooked vegetables. Bring just to a boil over high heat then reduce to a simmer; cook 45 min., or until sauce reduces and thickens.

For a flavour switch, substitute equal amount of ground turkey for the ground beef and add 1 tsp (5 mL) smoked paprika along with the other spices.
