Chili Powder

(Chili Powder)  Chili powder is made from grinding dried chili peppers.  It is a major seasoning in chili, which gets it name from these peppers, and in other Mexican style recipes.  The chili powders we have used are generally on the low "heat" side, and require additional hot pepper (cayenne) to increase the spiciness and "heat".  Chili powder is very high in vitamin A.  See the nutritional chart below.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-8)
