Expert Tips

Smoked Spanish paprika is a special spice that has a distinct, smoky flavor from smoked peppers. Look for it in the spice aisle of the supermarket or ethnic markets.

If smoked Spanish paprika is unavailable, substitute any variety of paprika, such as sweet and mild or even hot. Either will provide the aromatic flavor from the peppers without the smokiness.
