Also known as ground red pepper, Cayenne pepper is made from ground hot chiles, and is popular around the world for its intense heat and clean flavor. It does not only kick up the heat, but is a first-rate flavor enhancer, if you can handle it. Use it in chili, soups, stews, and in any dish that would benefit from adding a little fire. Use it as is in dry rubs, or dissolve in oil for a marinade. Cayenne pepper ranges 30,000 to 55,000 on Scoville scale, and, due to its capsaicin content, studies have shown that consuming cayenne pepper may temporarily increase metabolic rate, promoting caloric burn.
