So, what is pepe di cayenna?

Pepe di Cayenna, also known as cayenne pepper, is a fiery spice that originates from South and Central America.

It is commonly used in many dishes, including soups, stews, sauces, and meat dishes, to add heat and depth of flavor. Beyond its fiery taste, pepe di Cayenna has several health benefits, including improving digestion, boosting metabolism, and reducing inflammation. When used in moderation, this spicy ingredient can add a powerful punch to your culinary creations.
