Cayenne pepper is an excellent choice when making hot sauces and dry rubs for its sweet and spicy flavor. It also can be used in any dish where an increase in the heat level is desired without compromising the overall flavor profile of the dish. We especially like adding just a dash of it on chicken breast, eggs and vegetables. Add a teaspoon to fresh salsa, nachos, and tacos for an added kick.
