Cayenne pepper is a staple in Southwestern American, Asian, and Mexican cuisine, as well as Cajun and Creole cooking. The powder form adds a richness of flavor to a variety of dishes with a complimentary heat. It can range from mildly hot to a very hot and spicy taste, depending on the amount of heat units. Beware, the heat can totally change a recipe’s spiciness. Cayenne pepper powder can be used in a wide variety of dishes, and can give a nice kick to chili and BBQ sauces. If 40,000 Heat Units is not enough for you, try Hungry Gene's Cayenne Pepper Powder 90k H.U. or if you're really daring, try Hungry Gene's Moruga Scorpion Chili Powder (600,000 H.U.). Now that's hot!
Warning: Excessive dose may cause gastrointestinal irritation or heartburn, or exacerbate gastroesophageal reflux. Cayenne preparations irritate the mucous membranes and injured or broken skin.
