When we were in Canada, one of the things we brought back with us was Cayenne Pepper. We love our spices, we use so much, some days you forget that it's even there, however when there's no spice, you'll hear all about it!
So here in Guatemala, all of the cayenne is a mild orange colour. The stuff we bought in Canada (imported from an unknown nation) is a beautiful dark red. The red stuff not too surprisingly is significantly hotter than it's orange counterpart. Even I had to tone down how much I was using. I can't wait to make a butter chicken!
