Chili Quakers

Welcome to Mocktober- an entire month of taking your favorite recipes and making them chili. One thing that won’t be mocked is the Paleo diet.  I Yabba-Dabba-Don’t touch trends, that is, until chili starts trending.  At that point I’ll go beyond touching and get outright intimate.


Corn chips get better with a chili touchup.




Dry Ingredients:

½ C corn meal

1/3 C flour

1 T chili powder

½ t baking powder

½ t garlic slat

½ t cumin

½ t mural of flavor (Penzey’s)

1 T sesame seed


Wet Ingredients:

¼ C milk

1 ½ T olive oil

½ T sesame oil

½ t hot sauce

½ t Worcestershire sauce



  1. In a bowl, mix the dry ingredients.
  2. In another bowl, mix the wet ingredients.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and (guess what) mix.
  4. Grease a cookie sheet and dust it with corn flours.
  5. With a rolling pin, roll the chili corn meal mixture onto the cookie sheet. Make it thin, Hoss.
  6. Score the flatted mixture such that it may later be easily broken into chip sized pieces.
  7. Bake at 350F for 25 minutes.

Tasting Notes:

Mrs. Chili 365 won’t let me adopt orphaned pet ducks. I was bumming but confident, as I knew I’d get my quackers in one way or another.  What I hadn’t anticipated is that my chili corn chips would be virtual chili sesame crackers.  Ah, there is magic (and nitrogen) in the air.  The ITP thought the crackers were so-so.  I so think they kinda look like duck food.  They taste better than duck food.


Not a bad start for Mocktober. In the coming days, look for more favorites, defiled by chili.


Table Talk:


Chili365: What do you think of the chili cracker?

The Pirate: I can’t describe it.

Chili365: What do you mean?

The Pirate: I can’t describe it in a weird way.

Chili365: How about in a normal way?

The Pirate: No.
