Shipping it cast $100.00 then.
Jack Benny would order 12 quarts at a time. He and many other stars loved that chili.
The famous CHASENS RESTAURANT was opened in 1936 and closed in 1995. IT Was host to many of the famous stars OF the time.
A lunch would be around $60.00, and dinner over $100.00
I wonder what the chili cost!
I hear there is a CHASEN RECIPE BOOK with many of his recipes for sale, check the internet,if interested

How to Make CHILI.The FAMOUS CHASEN's RECIPE, LOVED by LIZ.
- In the same skillet, melt butter over medium heat.
Brown the chuck and pork pieces, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes.Stir in chili powder and reserved onion mixture.. Cook for 10 minutes.
Add meat and onion mixture. Season with salt pepper and cumin. Simmer, covered, for 1 hour.
Remove cover and cook 30 minutes longer.
Skim any fat off the top. You could serve now.
BUT Chasen would let it cool, then covered
and put in the cooler...overnight,for the flavors to blend.
Like we do spaghetti or stews, always better the next day!
- *NOTE:Often Chasen would enter the restaurant to o
versee the cooking, and then would add his
"SECRET INGREDIENT"...1/2 cup of KAHLUA!
Like some of us, add COCOA to our chili!
**If you want to, use ground beef and pork.
