"penguin" peppers are very easy to get here in the Houston area (go to any Fiesta store food chain)--not seen the powder but just buy the packaged dried ones and grind up in a mini-food processor if you need a lot or use a mortar and pestle and make what amount you need. And believe, me like what's already posted, they will take your socks and shoes off. Be sure to wear disposable gloves when you handle them or you will regret it should you rub your eyes or nose.

btw "pequin" comes from the Spanish word "pequeno" which means small and these are very small reddish brown berry looking peppers about the size of a pea. Sometimes, the smaller the pepper the harder they hit---so do be careful and wear disposable gloves when handling them. Hope that you find what you are looking for. Good luck!!! :)

Now you guys, making me spit coffee all over the place...
Gosh, this was a good laugh, thank you!

By the way, I can get all kinds of chile powder at Smart & Final here. Will check pequin.
