Crushed Red Chiles

Crushed red pepper flakes are an icon of Italian family restaurant tables. Their use as a condiment originated in Bukovo, a village in North Macedonia, where the spicy red peppers grow abundantly. This cheery mix of flakes and seeds adds moderate heat to tomato sauce, homemade sausage, and, of course, pizza!

Details

This is the chile pepper to use whenever a recipe calls for "red pepper flakes." Many Mexican, South American, and Asian recipes call for red chile peppers, but its in Italian cuisine where these pepper flakes are most popular. There's a reason why they're also referred to as "pizza pepper!" Use a pinch to add a modest heat to Italian pasta dishes, Asian stir-fry, and South American adobos. Crushed red pepper ranges from 15,000 to 45,000 on the Scoville heat scale.

Love these crushed red chile peppers

I picked up a 4 ounce bag of these crushed red chile peppers on my last order. If it came in a larger size, I would probably pick that up next time.

I'll sprinkle some of these crushed red chile peppers on nearly everything. It's a staple for the morning homemade sausage & egg biscuit and anything else that I might cook, grill, smoke, or order out.

Having some great spices at good prices is really great now that I mostly work from home due to COVID. Fast shipping and a great selection.

For the Spice House folks, you'all need to do more Spice Spotlight blog postings. Reading about the use and the history of favorite spices, and spices that I might want to try next.

The Best Crushed Red Pepper Ever

This pepper has a great heat level and wonderful flavor. I use it in a number of different recipes and always on pizza. Much better than what you have on the table in an Italian restaurant.

A Kitchen Staple

I use this in so many dishes and as a condiment. It’s great to have around. Not to mention the color adds a nice visual pop to dishes. My favorite thing I make with this is a citrus and herb cod - so good!

Hubby doesn’t want to be without

He loves this one to use with pizza night dinner. I buy the bag to refill my jar. Very convenient.
