Ground Cayenne Pepper is a bright orange finely ground red pepper spice popular in Mexican, South American, Cajun/Creole, and Asian cuisines. The name comes from the Tupi Indian name for the region in the French Guyana where the peppers were first discovered.
Whole cayenne chilis are bright red and range from two to five inches in length. They are an extremely hot chili pepper and a little bit can add a lot of heat to a spicy dish.
Cayenne chili powder is such a universal hot pepper spice that it can be addd to virtually any dish needing a little extra kick. Keep it on the table as a last minute spice added according to individual taste, or use it in the kitchen while cooking. Pair cayenne pepper with cheese, corn, rice, potatoes, and other starches to absorb and distribute some of its heat. Cayenne can be used on any number of meats such as pork, chicken, fish, lobster, and shrimp. Use it in stews, curries, marinades, hot sauces, and barbecue sauces.
