Jalapeno, Dried

Named after Jalapa, the capital of Veracruz, Mexico, these smooth, dark green (scarlet red when ripe) chiles range from mildly hot to very hot. Jalapeños are quite popular because they’re so easily seeded (the seeds and veins are extremely hot). In their dried form, jalapeños are known as chipotles.

Paprika, Hot Hungarian

Most of us associate Hungarian paprika as a simple means to add a dash of color to eggs, poultry, fish or meat. But it adds flavor as well. Mix the paprika with a little oil to act as an agent to transfer flavor, and help prevent the spice from burning during cooking. We recommend gently heating the spice in oil to release the flavor as you cook your dish.

Paprika, Spanish Smoked

Smoked paprika is a Spanish cousin to the more widely used sweet Hungarian paprika. It’s made from pimiento peppers that have been dried and smoked over an oak fire, then ground into a fine powder.

You’ll sometimes see it called pimenton, smoked pimenton, sweet paprika, Spanish paprika, or any variation of those names, but you can always recognize this spice by its deep red color and powerful smoky aroma. Unless the packaging indicates otherwise, it’s not typically a hot spice – in actuality, the spice itself is quite mild and sweet.

When using smoked paprika, a little goes a long way with this spice and the smokiness can sometimes get a little overpowering if you use too much. When experimenting with it in a new dish, start off with a half teaspoon and work your way up from there.

The real draw with this spice is the smoky quality. Even just a little bit adds an incredibly seductive smoky flavor and aroma to any dish. Traditionally, it’s used in making chorizo sausage and many paella recipes. We also like it in stews, with potatoes, in dry rubs for any meat, and in egg dishes.

Paprika, Sweet Smoked

The smoked varieties of paprika are made traditionally by drying ripe, freshly harvested fruits in low-lying, adobe smoke houses gently heated by smoking grills fired with slow-burning oak wood. In home cooking sweet paprika is the mandatory ingredient which gives Hungarian goulashes characteristic color and flavor. Paprika complements chicken, veal and pork casseroles, egg dishes when used as a garnish, sauces, meat loaf, and barbecued and roast meats when sprinkled on before cooking.
