What Is Cayenne Pepper?
A thin, red chili pepper that is typically used in a dried, ground form. Scoville heat units: 30,000–50,000.
With a hot, fiery taste, cayenne is one of the main ingredients of Tabasco sauce, and is commonly used in a wide range of world cuisines, like Creole, Asian, Indian, Thai, Chinese, Korean, and more.
Can You Use Cayenne Pepper, Chili Powder, and Paprika Interchangeably?
Despite the similarities in appearance, these three ingredients can’t necessarily be used interchangeably in all recipes. The flavor and heat level of a given chili powder can fluctuate depending on the ingredients, so while a super-hot chili powder could at times be swapped for cayenne, it is not guaranteed to be a good substitute.
Paprika comes in a variety of spice levels and flavors, ranging from sweet and mild to spicy and smokey. Substituting cayenne, or any kind of dried chili pepper, for sweet paprika would certainly affect the overall flavor of the dish.
