Dramatic color. Smoky flavor.

Smoked Paprika
(capsicum annum)
Smoked Paprika, Ground

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.

Fun Fact: Paprika was first discovered in the Americas. But it was the Spanish who first dried it and ground it for culinary use after Christopher Columbus brought it back from the New World.
