So, what is cayena?

Cayena, also known as cayenne pepper, is a popular spice used in many cuisines around the world. It comes from the dried fruit of the Capsicum annuum plant, which is related to bell peppers and jalapeños. The spice is known for its intense heat, which is due to the presence of capsaicin. Cayena is a versatile ingredient and is often used to add heat and depth of flavor to dishes like chili, curries, and soups. It is also a common ingredient in spice blends like garam masala and Cajun seasoning. In addition to its culinary uses, cayena is believed to have several health benefits, including aiding in digestion, boosting metabolism, and reducing inflammation.
