I found this on the internet. It claimed to be the "original" Chasen's Chili that Elizabeth Taylor sent for when filming Cleopatra. I would guess from the reviews that it is not that recipe. I've not tried it, but with such low reviews, I sure am NOT going to try it. I suggest you don't either!!

is there really 2 cups of butter in this recipe? that's a whole pound. i didn't think my stomach would handle that so i only used 1/2c which is a whole stick and i thought that made it taste oily. i can't imagine using 2 cups.
