Substituting Red Chili Pepper Flakes for Dried Chinese Chili Peppers

masha | Feb 5, 201908:05 AM     15

Since it's Chinese New Year, I was planning to make some Chinese food for dinner tonight. One of the recipes calls for 6 dried red chili peppers; after searching some local groceries (not Asian specialty stores), I've been unable to locate any so I'd like to substitute dried pepper flakes. Any suggestion of the quantity of red pepper flakes I should use? (I don't have time today to go further afield to visit an Asian Specialty store, so using the dried peppers is not an option.) Thanks.
