Did Someone Say Genius? Home-made Chili Seasoning

For years I have been wanting to make (yes, I said for years) white chicken chili.

It has been raining for days, and temperatures just won't rise above 55.

Are.... you.... serious....? Almost the end of May and the temp is 55....

I headed to my kitchen with the attempt to make white chicken chili....

I found out quickly that I didn't have any chili seasoning packets.

As I stood in the middle of my kitchen and did a slow-motion ballerina twirl, while covering my eyes with my hands (are you picturing this?), it dawned on me that I have a whole spice rack full of spices.

I am going to try to make my own.

Did the attempt pan-out? It sure did....


This is what I did:

Chili Seasoning Mix

1 TBS paprika
2 1/2 tsp. seasoning salt
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. ground cayenne pepper
3/4 tsp. white pepper
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. ground thyme
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. poultry seasoning

Mix them all together and you get chili seasoning mix. Goodbye BROOKS, CHILI-O, or any others that you use.

"Let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance."
Proverbs 1:5

This chili seasoning has a lot in common with the book of Proverbs. The book of Proverbs deals with everyday life. Proverbs gives practical suggestions for effective living. The book is not just a collection of homey sayings; it contains deep spiritual insights drawn from experience. A proverb is a short, wise, easy-to-learn saying that calls a person to action. Just like this chili seasoning did (you can make your own). Maybe I should call it proverb chili seasoning....
The book of Proverbs doesn't argue about basic spiritual and moral beliefs; it assumes we already hold them. The main focus is God, His character, works, and blessings, and it tells how we can live in close relationship to Him.

  4. That is a great idea! I try to keep ziploc containers of taco seasoning and fajita seasoning. I hate buying the packets and it is much easier to watch our salt intake.

I look forward to and appreciate any comments.
