Crushed chilli or red pepper flakes is a condiment consisting of dried and crushed red chili peppers. This condiment is most often produced from cayenne-type peppers, although commercial producers may use a variety of different cultivars. It is usually used as a spice to add pungency and heat to dishes, and it is sometimes used to make spicy sauces.

The major difference between crushed red pepper and chili powder (which is made from powdered dried ground chili peppers) is that crushed red pepper contains the seeds and membranes of the chili pepper pod, while chili powder does not.

The crushed version of chilli peppers is used to add heat to food, particularly Mexican or Spanish cuisine, or in the preparation of salsas and sauces.

It is also popularly used as a pizza topping on pizzas such as pepperoni pizza, which contains pepperoni sausage as its base ingredient. It is also used as an ingredient for making chili con carne, a spicy stew containing meat with beans and tomatoes that originated in Mexico.


In China, crushed red pepper is called hong you 辣椒 (literally "hot pepper"), which refers to any kind of hot pepper but usually Sichuan pepper (花椒) or Sichuan peppercorn (花椒). It is used in dishes such as mapo tofu and ma po doufu (a type of spicy tofu). It can also be used as an ingredient in some Chinese stews such as beef stewed with pickled cabbage and beef stewed with star anise.
