Cayenne Pepper. This is typically a medium-hot chili (30,000 to 50,000 Scoville heat units), fitting neatly between the serrano and the Thai pepper. In terms of our jalapeño reference point, on average it is around 12 times hotter than a jalapeño. It has a bit of zing to its flavour, but the cayenne pepper is still a way away from habaneros and the hottest end of the chili pepper spectrum.

The cayenne (aka red pepper) has become a go-to spice on the spice rack for most amateur and professional chefs. It is a very versatile way to add some spice to nearly any dish, from soups and pizzas to meat entrees and baked desserts. The famous red pepper flakes you find at pizzerias (and in many homes) use a variety of hot peppers, but cayenne chili pepper is what gives it perhaps its greatest kick.

Some benefits. Boosting antioxidant activity. Cryptoxanthin is also a type of pigment called a carotenoid, and it gives the pepper its red colour. Easing cold symptoms. Some people use cayenne pepper in home remedies for coughs, congestion, and to fight off colds. Capsaicin, the active ingredient in cayenne peppers, may have pain-relieving properties. One review published in 2016 looked at the potential for capsaicin in a cream to reduce pain.
