Originally cultivated in Mexico, nowadays paprika is mostly associated with Hungarian and Spanish cuisines. However, because of its widespread availability, paprika has become a culinary staple for countries all over the world – from the shores of the Mediterranean to the Americas and across to the Middle East.

Derived from ground, air-dried chilies of the Capsicum annuum pepper family, paprika encompasses a range of flavors and heat levels. Varieties within the Capsicum annuum family include sweet bell peppers, piquant jalapenos, fiery cayenne, and of course, paprika itself. Depending on the pepper variety and the growing region, paprika can also range in heat, from sweet to spicy, with flavor profiles varying from mild to robust.

This versatile spice not only lends its vibrant color to dishes but also contributes complex and distinctive flavors. From classic goulash to deviled eggs, from aromatic paella to fragrant tagine, paprika plays a vital role in countless recipes. It's also a common ingredient in spice blends and rubs, adding depth and character to culinary creations.

With such a diverse array of options, it's easy to see why paprika is beloved by chefs and home cooks alike.

Hungarian Paprika
Typically a rusty-reddish color. It is the variety that most of us are used to. Hungarian paprika is a great addition to many dishes and is ideal to use in multi-purpose seasonings. It has a lingering warmth, and it is more intense and slightly hot.

Spanish Paprika
It is also known as Pimentón. It is sweet, slightly peppery, and aromatic with a deep red color. It adds rich, warm color and subtle flavor to sauces, stews, soups, as well as meats and deviled eggs.

Smoked Paprika
The peppers used to make this paprika are smoked before being ground, imparting a rich smokiness. It has a delicious robust aroma and flavor, and a deep red color. While you can taste the sweet, mild flavor of paprika, the smoky flavor is dominant.

Domestic Paprika
It has a vibrant red color and a bold scent. The flavor is sweeter than Hungarian paprika, and it is perfect for Southwestern dishes and seasonings like chili blends or BBQ rubs and sauces. Grown in California.

Hot Paprika
This paprika is reddish-brown in color and it offers a fiery bite to any dish. The flavor is like chorizo, with a spicy, tingling sensation on your tongue. Too hot?! Mix it with sweet paprika to tame it down.
