Perfect for tailgate parties, this hot and spicy chili is packed with protein, fiber and disease-fighting antioxidants from all the beans, tomatoes, onions and garlic. Keep it lean and heart-healthy by using ground beef with no more than 10 percent fat content; check package labels in the supermarket.

If you prefer a milder chili, start with half the spices, and increase to desired hotness. Chili is a great leftover meal. Simply reheat until hot (at least 165 F).

Makes about 16 cups (10 servings, 1 2/3 cups each)

Ingredients

1 tablespoon canola oil
2 1/2 cups chopped onions

1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 tablespoon ground cumin
2 tablespoons chili powder
8 drops hot red pepper sauce
