Cayenne pepper has the power to make any dish fiery hot, but it also has a subtle flavor-enhancing quality. A dash of cayenne pepper boosts the flavor of low-salt or low-fat dishes and can be used in place of whole chili peppers in barbecue sauce and chili. For a zesty change, use cayenne to replace paprika on deviled eggs or potato salad. From California. Keep in a cool, dry place, out of the light.
