Bittersweet Smoked Paprika is the most popular variety of pimentón in Spain. Made from Jaranda and Jariza chilies from the La Vera region of Spain that are smoked over oak while drying. Once dry, they are ground into a gorgeous reddish-orange powder that has a mildly spicy deep smoke flavour. Spanish butchers prepare traditional Chorizo sausage with it. It is excellent on shrimp or scallops sautéed in garlic and delicious fragrant addition to chili, braised beef for tacos or in a dry rub for ribs. Great in Spanish rice and Arroz con Pollo.
