Crushed chillies are dried, crushed chilli peppers that are often used to add heat and flavour to a wide range of dishes. They are also known as red pepper flakes or chilli flakes. These chilli flakes have a smoky, earthy flavour, and intense heat.
Crushed chillies can be added to dishes at any stage of the cooking process, but are most commonly used as a seasoning or condiment. They can be sprinkled over pizza, pasta dishes, soups, stews, and stir-fries. They can also be used to add heat and flavour to marinades and sauces.
