Banish bland from any dish with a pinch of pure cayenne pepper. This intensely hot seasoning is a staple in Cajun and other spicy cuisines, adding fiery flavor and bite without overtaking the taste of other ingredients in a recipe.
Why so hot? Ground from a potent type of chili pepper, cayenne contains a compound called capsaicin (also found in taste bud-burning jalapeños and habaneros) that causes a characteristic stinging sensation when it hits the tongue. Besides kicking up the intensity of cooked dishes, capsaicin—an antioxidant—can be a nutritious addition to the diet.
How to enjoy it:
From Buffalo wings to salsas, chilis and stews, any dish gets instant zip with a sprinkle of spicy ground cayenne. If replacing fresh peppers with powder in a recipe, a quarter teaspoon packs in the power of two whole cayenne peppers.
