Forming part of the capsicum family, Chilli Flakes are made from dried and crushed Red Chilli Peppers. It is believed back in the 15th Century, the that Spanish explorer Columbus wrongly assumed due to their heat, that chillies are a relative of peppercorns and hence the name Chilli â€œPeppersâ€ stuck. Chilli Flakes are perfect for rubs, stews, and tomato based sauces. Make your own spicy marinades or to add some heat to dips and condiments. Or sprinkle some on your eggs or pizza to add some dazzling heat.
