About Crushed Red Pepper Flakes

Crushed red pepper flakes are used as both a condiment and a seasoning by cooks around the world. You’ll spot it on the tables of every respectable pizza parlor in Chicago, New York City, and across Southern Italy — where its usage began in the late 1800s.

Red pepper flakes are a great addition to any dish where you need extra heat. While they’re most commonly associated with Italian food — pizza, pasta, sausage, and tomato-based sauces — crushed red pepper flakes are also commonly found in Chinese, African, and Mexican cuisines. Add these spicy little flakes to your chili recipes, stews, soups, stir-fry dishes, quesadillas, and more. They’re also used in various pickling blends.

Crushed red pepper flakes are produced from red chili peppers. The most commonly used are the De Arbol Chiles, Japones Chiles, and Tien Tsin Chiles. These chili flakes are made from Birdseye Chiles, a darker, almost burgundy colored pepper.
