Flavor gets more intense by degrees.

Crushed Red Pepper
(capsicum species)
Crushed Red Pepper, Crushed

Essential in African and Mexican dishes, crushed red pepper gives a hot bite to any dish you add it to.

It’s an excellent seasoning for meats and vegetables. But be sure to be careful. It doesn’t take much crushed red pepper to add an intense amount of heat to your dish. And your mouth.

We recommend adding a dash at a time until you achieve the perfect amount of heat.

Fun Fact: Recent archaeological finds in Ecuador indicate that we’ve been using chiles in cooking for at least 6,000 years, making the chili one of the oldest domesticated foods in the hemisphere.

Our Crushed Red Pepper is only red pepper. Spice Islands® spices and herbs don’t contain added sugar, fillers or other ingredients so you get the most authentic flavor every time.
