This chili is sure to please your hungry crowd have them scraping the pot for more!
(but seriously, I could eat a bowl every night, anyone else?)

Just dump all the ingredients in your slow-cooker. Set it to Low and Go!



*2 tablespoons avocado oil
*1 cup chopped onion
*3 garlic cloves, minced
* 2½ cups sweet potato cubes (fresh or frozen)
*1-2 cans no-salt added black beans (optional)                                                                                                           
*2 tablespoons chili powder
*2 teaspoons ground cumin
*2 large cans diced tomatoes in juice
*2 small cans tomato paste
