Aleppo Pepper is a moderately hot chile that isn't overpowering, but that is complex enough to stand alone in a recipe. The bright, slightly fruity heat will add a kick to both savory and sweet dishes. It pairs exceptionally well with meat and tomato-based dishes, like pasta sauces, stews, and pizza, and spices up lentils beautifully. This premium chile replaces generic red pepper flakes and should be your go-to chile flake from now on!
