Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Smoked Spanish paprika is a special Spanish paprika that has a distinct, smoky flavor from smoked peppers. Look for it in the spice aisle of the supermarket or ethnic markets.
  • tip 2
    If smoked Spanish paprika is unavailable, substitute any variety of paprika, such as sweet and mild or even hot. Either will provide the aromatic flavor from the peppers without the smokiness.
