Thursday Food of the Day – December 3, 2015

FOOD OF THE WEEK – CRUSHED RED CHILI FLAKES

Continuing our series of featuring spices, this week we are using Crushed Red Chili Flakes.  From breakfast to lunch to dinner, just a sprinkle of crushed red chili flakes can transform a dish without overpowering it. Bring on the flakes!

WHY CRUSHED RED CHILI FLAKES?

 Crushed red chili flakes (a.k.a red pepper flakes) add a depth of flavor and heat, so you can make a simple recipe such as pasta sauce, scrambled eggs or pizza taste more complex. They are made from a variety of peppers, including combinations of ancho, bell and cayenne.
