Cayenne pepper

Is there something I can use in place of cayenne pepper?

Sort of depends on the recipe.

Crushed red pepper.
Any hot chile pepper, ground.
White pepper
Hot Paprika...

If you could tell us why you want a substitute and what you wanted it in we might be able to help a bit more.

Crushed red pepper I would think would do quite nicely. I did not know if you just did not want the heat of cayenne, whether you were allergic to the stuff, or what.

Enjoy.

I have used crushed red pepper for jerky before. It works quite well.

Another vote for crushed red pepper flakes - I've subbed them before for ground cayenne & they've worked out great.

A lot of the Crushed Red Pepper flakes on the market are in fact Cayenne peppers.

I have used red Chile powder (don't confuse with chili powder)
or Tabasco sauce. 1/8 teaspoon = 4 drops Tabasco sauce
