Hottest Spices for Cooking

Stock up your spice collection with some of the hottest spices that can be used in curries and various other dishes. Here are some of our top picks:

Cayenne Pepper

Cayenne pepper comes from the Capsicum annuum pepper. It is a moderately hot chilli pepper that is used in seafood, egg dishes, casseroles, soups, stews, curries, and numerous other dishes that need more heat. It also has many health benefits, from lowered blood pressure to increased metabolism and improved digestive health.

Dried chilli

Dried chilli is particularly hot when the seeds are also dried and added to the mix, as it is the seeds of the chilli that pack the most power. Versatile and easy to use, you can sprinkle dried crushed chilli onto any dish you want to liven up - curries, pasta, soups, grills, oven dishes, stews, meat, fish, and seafood.
