    Not far away from Cheyenne is the little town of Chugwater WY. (Check out Stampede Saloon and Eatery & Chugwater Chili) :D
    Every year Chugwater has a chili cookoff.
    Their chili powder is a Rex family staple.

    That isn’t chili powder. It doesn’t have any real chilies in it.

    You need A blend of Pablano, Califorinian, and New Mexican chilies to give you a good blend of heat, heat dwell, and flavor. Most paprika is just sweet. Cumin and oregano levels vary greatly.

    My chili powder DOES have garlic, onion and cumin in it. But it also has chili pequin, chili pasilla and chili ancho. Toss in a couple of serranos if you want to boost the Scoville numbers some.

    A wide range of intensity is found in commonly used peppers:

    Bell pepper 0 SHU
    New Mexico green chile 0 - 70,000 SHU
    Fresno, jalapeño 3,500-10,000 SHU
    Cayenne 30,000-50,000 SHU
    Piri piri 50,000-100,000 SHU
    Habanero, Scotch bonnet, bird's eye 100,000–350,000 SHU

    And by the way, the hottest pepper in the world come's from the Carolina's, The Carolina Reaper !..........

    Tom- the Carolina Reaper is no longer the king of peppers. The grower that developed the Reaper in 2013 has been busy cross breeding. The new pepper, known as Pepper X is so hot it will kill zombies. At 200 yards.

    I can recall one Cheyenne diner that had really decent food.
    30 years ago I had some really good catfish (special of the day).
    I think its still kicking today.
    The Luxury Diner on West Lincolnway.


    Back in the late 1980's there used to be a tiny roadside kiosk malt shop that used real malt powder, the boss knew about the joint, it used to be on east lincolnway on the south side over by tbe jiffy lube.
    Im betting its gone today, still they had some really tasty malts (good memories)

    And Id think Id sniffed out every gunshop/pawnshop in town back then.
