Cayenne Pepper Powder

Cayenne pepper powder is made from dried cayenne peppers that have been ground into a fine, bright red powder. Cayenne peppers provide intense heat and spiciness. This fiery powder infuses dishes with bold, hot flavor and brilliant red color. Use sparingly to add heat to sauces, eggs, meats, and more. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dark place to preserve freshness. Its pronounced spiciness stands up well in spicy cuisine like cajun, creole, and southeast Asian. A small amount of cayenne brings big spice to any dish. Add a pinch at a time until you reach the desired heat level.
