    Ingredients

    Red peppers.

    While originally from the Americas, red chile peppers have found a place to thrive in the southern region of Italy. The chile pepper (or peperoncino) is celebrated in every home, usually drying in the sun of their kitchens as decoration, just waiting to be incorporated into a recipe. The spicy, peppery essence of these chiles complements the deep tomato and olive oil flavors of Mediterranean cuisine perfectly.

    We make our Extra Hot Crushed Red Pepper from the Capsicum frutenscens chile pepper, a small red chile with a moderate to spicy heat. The peppers in our Extra Hot Crushed Red Pepper pack an extra spicy punch for people who enjoy an elevated level of heat in their food.
