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....
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."
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.
