Red Pepper (Cayenne) is the ripened, dried pod of the Capsicum Frutescens. The capsicum family of spices includes sweet, or bell, pepper, paprika and jalapeno chilies. Used when "heat" is desired, the dried pepper is available ground or crushed.
The color is an orange-red to deep red and capsaicin is the main constituent producing the hot taste.

Cayenne pepper (also commonly called Red Pepper) is perhaps the world's favorite pepper for using in hot and spicy dishes. Cayenne is a member of the Capsicum family. The cayenne pepper grows on plants with tree-like structure, although they are technically considered shrubs. The cayenne plant is not very big, growing up to about 3 feet tall and 2 feet at its widest point.
Add anywhere that heat is desired. Cayenne Pepper is good in most Mexican and Cajun dishes. Add to dips, nachos, blackened fish or meats, barbecue sauces, and buffalo wings. Adds a flair of flavor to french fries and popcorn. Use sparingly as this product is very hot. Be sure to use care when cooking with this product as it will burn if it gets in eyes or cuts. Start by using just a dash per serving and adjust from there.
