Pepper, Hot Red Ground (Cayenne)

The ground hot red pepper we purchase is often referred to as cayenne pepper.  We use it in a wide variety of dishes to add a spicy flavor.  A little goes a long way!  The use of hot red pepper is a matter of taste, and we suggest that you try a little at a time until you reach the spiciness you desire.  See nutritional information below.
