People rave about this chili recipe and beg me to make it for parties. It's sweeter than regular chili, but quite fabulous. Serve it with an array of toppings--like sour cream, onions and cheddar. Let your guests customize to their heart's content.

In a heavy-bottomed pot, saute the onion in the vegetable oil until golden brown.
Add the beef and cook until medium-rare. Don't stir the beef too much -- you want to have some large clumps of beef in the finished chili.
Add the remaining ingredients and stir until blended. Cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes, until the beef is cooked through.
Don't try to make this an all-day cooking project. The sugar in the chili sauce can burn when left unattended for long periods of time. Chili sauce can be found in the condiment aisle of your supermarket, near the cocktail sauce and ketchup.
