Ground organic chili is a delicious addition to your cooking if you like food with an edge.
Recommended use:. Use as a culinary spice
Chilis are used as a culinary spice that will pep up any meal and make you feel warm (or even hot). Chili peppers belong to the nightshades family and are related to bell peppers. However, the amount of capsaicin in chilis is up to 30 times higher than in sweet peppers. A rule of thumbs is that the smaller the chili pepper is, the stronger (hotter) it is.
