As described, a very convenient (lazy) way to add heat to you dishes. Great in pasta and curries. Goes a long way too as you dont need much to add a kick. 1/4 teaspoon for 2 is enough for medium heat.
Not what I've expected
I used it as a side dip for chicken. Except for being spicy, it has no taste at all. The texture is rough, I didn't like having large pieces of peppers skin inside.
