While most of us in this country associate Red Pepper Flakes with Italian food, they can actually be used to give a nice zing to a variety of cuisines and are an essential ingredient for many African, Chinese and Mexican dishes.

Red Pepper Flakes are ideal when you want to perk up chili, chowders, pizza, pickling, salads, homemade sausage, sandwiches, soups, spaghetti sauce, stir-fries or vegetable recipes.

Red Pepper Flakes work well in combination with most spices, lemon juice, lime juice and coconut milk and because theyre typically a member of the nightshade family they pair very well with potatoes and tomatoes (theres that pizza tie-in again).
