Question Converting from dry cayenne peppers to ground cayenne pepper

I'm trying to make a recipe that calls for 2 cups of dry cayenne peppers (50g) - since i don't have dry cayenne peppers, what would be the amount of ground cayenne pepper powder that i could/should use?

50g of powdered cayenne pepper. Since it is weight it does not matter what form it is in.

That's a tough one.

Depending on the size of the recipe, you might try a teaspoon or two then taste it for heat and adjust as needed.

As an alternative, here is a link to a list of peppers at various heat levels. You could try to find some other type of pepper equal in heat to the cayenne. Scoville scale - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

DUH! I guess I am guilty of over thinking this one.
