Vividly red in color, smoked paprika is made from ground Capsicum chili peppers. Although, it doesn’t pack the punch you’d expect from a chili. Instead, it has a delicate aroma and a sweetly smoky flavor.
We source our Spice Islands® smoked paprika from around the world, looking for chiles with high extractable color (a sign of potent flavor and aroma). Then we slowly smoke it over a wood fire to enhance its natural flavor.
Smoked paprika is more intense than other varieties, so use it more sparingly than you would regular paprika.
