What Are Chili Flakes? 

Chili Flakes are dried, crushed up red chile peppers, the most common pepper being used usually being cayenne. This spice, quite literally, is versatile because of the heat it delivers and while also not being overbearing in size. Sprinkling these on top of a pizza, into a pasta or over a bowl of chili shows how using a little goes a long way.

How Chili Flakes Are Used

Chili Flakes are most commonly used as a topping or final step in developing flavor in a dish. Think of making a creamy pasta dish and at the end you finish the dish with some chili flakes to add a kick of spice to the palette. 

They can also be used as a building block to flavor when added into a cooked item such as a sauce or a soup. The presence of the heat early in a recipe will develop over time and meld with the other flavors present. The options are endless on when to use chili flakes, but the outcome is most often to impart a spicy element to the dish.

The Flavor Behind Chili Flakes

Chili flakes actually do not have much flavor on their own. They are small so it is hard to discern much from them individually, but they do bring an earthy and slightly fruity taste to a dish when used. This is due to the drying process of the peppers and ultimately the process of pulverizing them into flakes.

The spiciness of these flakes is relatively high to some so it is good to have a working knowledge of how to use these flakes when cooking with them. The general rule of thumb is that a little will in fact go a long way so use sparingly.
