Paprika - Smoked - Picante
Spain / Capsicum annum
From the La Vera region of Spain, this famous smoked paprika has a rich, deep character and authentic smoky flavor. With all the flavor of its more common dulce cousin, this picante version has long been a favorite in our shop. The heat is milder than cayenne, and boasts a bold smokiness.
This smoky paprika is great as a garnish or a base in vegetable soups or rice dishes, and as a rub on heavier meats when you're hungry for the "comfort" food of Spain.
1/2 cup is about 2.4 oz
