Add the onion and saute for a few minutes, then add the sweet potato and garlic. Keep sauteing until the onions are translucent, about 8-10 minutes. Add the can of tomatoes and vegetable broth. When broth is bubbling, reduce to a simmer and cook for approximately 30-35 minuts, or until the sweet potatoes are tender. As it cooks, you can cintinue to add the remaining vegetable broth as needed depending on the texture chili you like. Season to taste with salt..  When the chili is finishd, allow it to sit for a little while so the flavors can marinate. It’ll be better tomorrow.  T serve, top with grated cheese, fresh avocado slices and chives. Feel free to substitute other squash for the sweet potatoes. Add bacon, or chicken if you’d like too.
