Red Chili Flakes are made from hot dried red peppers and is not made of one type of chili, but from various combinations of ancho, bell, cayenne and other dried red peppers. Crushed red pepper shakers have become as standard as salt and pepper on tables at Italian and especially pizza parlors in the United States. Often there is a high ratio of seeds, which intensifies the heat of this flavorful condiment. Crushed red pepper is used in pickling, chowders,spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce, soups and sausage. As chilis have become more popular, the varieties of peppers used to make crushed red pepper has also changed. (thanks Wikipedia)
