Smoked paprika is the semi-secret ingredient in dozens of my favorite dishes. A pinch lends smoky flavor to vegetables, an indefinable savory quality to casseroles and stews. This sweet Spanish paprika, wood-smoked, is one of my favorites. It’s not spicy, but it has a sweet smokiness.

Each tin is 2.25 ounces.
