Wyoming (Sheepherder Chili)

This week in our study of the Western States is Wyoming. The capital of Wyoming is Cheyenne. Did you know that the Shoshone Indians who were the first inhabitants of the Yellowstone area were called sheep-eaters? Since we're talking sheep how about a tasty recipe to try…


Wyoming Sheepherder Chili
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 2 hours

3 lbs Ground beef
4 Tbsp Dried onions
1/4 cup Chili powder
1 Tbsp Cumin
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp Garlic powder
1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Vinegar
1 can Stewed tomatoes
1 can Tomato sauce

Brown the ground beef in a heavy pot. Drain off excess fat. Mix in the remaining ingredients: onions, chili powder, cumin, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt, pepper, oregano, vinegar, tomatoes and tomato sauce. Heat and then simmer for 2 hours (adding water as needed). Thicken with flour if desired (can use ground-up corn tortillas). Can serve over rice.
Serves 8

My guys liked this chili a lot because it was so meaty. For me it had too much chili powder for my taste buds. Other than that it was quite tasty. If you are from Wyoming we would love for you to share a recipe with us to try. I'll be back next week to tell you what's next in our study of the Western States. Thank you again for stopping by to learn along with us.
