Substitute crushed tomatoes for whole peeled tomatoes if you wish. I find that whole peeled tomatoes are usually better quality. It only takes a minute to cut up the whole peeled tomatoes before adding to the ground meat.
Cayenne pepper is optional when using crushed pepper flakes. My suggestion is to season to taste so that the chili isn’t too hot, that way you don’t overwhelm the good spicy flavors.
