Debo's Zesty Pepper Ranch Crackers

Copyright 2011 Christine's Pantry. All rights reserved.

Crushed red pepper is a condiment consisting of dried and crushed (as opposed to ground) red chili peppers. Crushed red pepper is made from hot dried red peppers. Crushed red pepper shakers have become as standard as salt and pepper on tables at Italian restaurants and especially pizza parlors in the United States. Crushed red pepper is not made of one type of chili, but from various combinations of ancho, bell, cayenne and more. Often there is a high ratio of seeds, which intensifies the heat of the pepper. Crushed red pepper is used in pickling, chowders, gumbos, spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce and sausage. As chilis have become more popular the styles and varieties of peppers used to make crushed red pepper has also increased.
