Nora Chile

Capsicum annum

The Nora Chile, also known as the paprika pepper or pimiento choricero, is essential to Spanish cuisine. Similar in appearance to the cascabel chile, but sweeter and with less heat, the rich earthy taste of the Nora is a delight. Plus, they are really cute.

Nora Chile is used to flavor soups, stews, paella, romesco sauce and some chorizo varieties. They pair wonderfully with seafood, including crab, octopus, cod, and rockfish, but they are also excellent with poultry. Try the Nora Chile in unexpected ways like smoky mashed potatoes, crab cakes or octopus ceviche!
