Chili Flakes are bold, spicy and consist of red chilies ground to flakes which include the dried seed. Chili Flakes have a medium heat without being overwhelming when used in small amounts. They are often used as a table condiment and provide a nice liveliness to a variety of cuisines. Chili flakes are commonly linked with pizza but also can add zest to chili, chowders, pickling, salads, homemade sausage, sandwiches, soups, spaghetti sauce, stir-fries or vegetable recipes. The flakes pair well with most spices, lemon juice, lime juice, coconut milk and they work well in combination with potatoes and tomatoes.
Members of the nightshade family, chili peppers have a lot going for them. Capsaicin is the main bioactive plant compound in chile peppers and the more capsaicin it contains the hotter the chile pepper.
