A mother has been charged with capital murder in the death of her daughter, who was suffocated with chili powder, police said. The woman, Angela DiSabella, 19, said she had used the powder to try to stop the 5-month-old girl from sucking her thumb, said Irving Police Department spokesman David Tull. Paramedics who went to the scene after the mother called for help found so much chili powder in the baby's throat that she could not breathe, he said.

Chili vs. chile. The war over how to spell New Mexico's most valuable vegetable crop continues to rage for the head of the Chile Pepper Institute at New Mexico State University. Paul Bosland, director of the institute and the school's chief chile breeder, has been trying for years to get everyone to spell chile--the hot peppers or the plant from which the peppers come--with an "e." He says chili--the spicy dish of meat and sometimes beans--should be spelled with an "i."

Dear SOS: I had lunch with a friend at Chaya Downtown restaurant, in Los Angeles. We ordered their chopped salad with grilled shrimp in an aioli jalapeño dressing. It was superb! I'd love to make it at home. Can you get the recipe from the chef? Velma Reichman Pacific Palisades Dear Velma: Chopped romaine lettuce tossed with fresh corn, avocado, cucumber and nicely spiced shrimp, this salad is big and bright, and it packs no shortage of heat from its jalapeño-spiced dressing.

Re "Making Out Like Bandits," July 27: These raccoons are certainly clever and powerful creatures. They kept on toppling over or opening our trash bins despite my best efforts to place barriers or even 20 pounds of bricks on top of the lids. In desperation, I decided to sprinkle some chili powder on the trash and hope this would work. After the first encounter, it took them six months to raid my trash again. Another sprinkling of chili powder has kept them away for at least two years.

This quick and easy jambalaya makes a special dinner when there's no time to cook. First, bacon and sausage are sauteed, then the pan drippings are blended with flour. The other ingredients--chopped tomato, sliced celery, pitted black olives and tomato paste--are added to make a richly textured sauce flavored with garlic, oregano, thyme and chili powder. After the sauce comes to a boil, shelled shrimp are added and cooked just until they turn pink, about four minutes.

Chili American-style is a spicy mixture that can show up almost anywhere--in a bowl or a burrito, over pasta, on top of rice or smothering a burger in a bun. The following recipes explore these approaches in an attempt to vary the fare of chili lovers. The first is a topping for pasta from "Pasta Presto" (Contemporary Books: $7.95). Author Norman Kolpas, who has compiled recipes for 100 quick sauces in this book, notes that chili con carne over pasta is a popular dish at American diners.

Fresh vegetables and fiber-rich garbanzo beans are the basis of this pleasantly light chili. The vegetables are cooked in a covered pot, so little of the flavor evaporates. Their juices enhance the simple broth, which is just water and liquid from the tomatoes. Almost any combination of fresh vegetables will do; use what you like, based on the season. I especially like this chili served with crisp Parmesan toasts.

"Breakfast is by far the best and most important meal of the day. A BLT is a near-perfect breakfast sandwich. Add an egg and you have, in my opinion, a perfect sandwich. Now people have started making breakfast burgers, topped with bacon and an egg, which is another great meal in my book! But , what if you combine the two? ! A BLT&E.

"Which wouldja like to try?" booms the smiling guy in the cowboy hat, brandishing a handful of tiny ice cream sampling spoons. Like a magnet, the sweet scent of caramelizing garlic fused with dusky cumin and earthy chili powder pulls you into a minuscule storefront that is Tub's Fine Chili & Fancy Fixin's. In black-rimmed pots behind the ordering counter sit seven chilis to sample.

Dear SOS: I attended Fries Avenue School in Wilmington in the early 1940s. The cafeteria served a tamale pie that I liked very much. It was different from today's tamale pies because there was not a corn bread crust on top. The cornmeal was mixed in with the rest of the ingredients and there was just the slight- est skin-like membrane instead of a crust. D.E. Miller Corona del Mar Dear D.E.: This recipe from our files sounds similar to the one you are looking for, as the cornmeal is mixed into the casserole.

DEAR SOS: King's Fish House in Calabasas serves a killer barbecue shrimp appetizer. The sauce is terrific for bread-dipping and is usually fought over at the table. Can you persuade them to part with the recipe? PENNY PEYSER Woodland Hills DEAR PENNY: Miss Manners might have something to say about fighting over food at the table. Maybe you should write to her, too. Paul Clotier kindly sent us the recipe. Write to Culinary SOS, Food Section, Los Angeles Times, 202 W. 1st St., Los Angeles, CA 90012 or e-mail to: cindy.

A fish filet quickly sauteed in a little oil or butter always makes for a nice quick entree. Take just a few more minutes and you can make a sauce that elevates the dish to something a little more special. In this case, a tomato-cilantro sauce over red snapper filets, accompanied by rice infused with lime, makes a light yet satisfying meal. Slices of fresh papaya or mango sprinkled with a little lime juice--and maybe a little chili powder--finish the meal quite nicely.

Last month I did my first spring cleaning ever. Due to a diminished capacity for nostalgia, I plan not to have another for about 20 more years. But one thing that had been lurking under a pile of stuff did jog a lot of memories: "The Impoverished Student's Book of Cookery, Drinkery, & Housekeepery," by Jay F. Rosenberg (Reed College Alumni Assn., 1965). It was the only cookbook a lot of my friends owned at UC Berkeley.
