Kitchen Tip:

Cayenne pepper, also known as the Guinea spice, cow–horn pepper, red-hot chilli pepper or red pepper (especially in its powdered form), is related to bell peppers, jalapenos, paprika and others. You can simply use any of the above to substitute the cayenne pepper or simply deseed the fresh red pepper, chop and add to your taste.

Kitchen Safety:

Never put fresh pepper in a hot pan or burning fire in your kitchen because it has a serious choking effect, which could even suffocate you or your children.  Always apply olive oil on your hands to reduce the burning effect of peppers and then wash with soap after cutting.
