You'll likely recognize smoked paprika as the signature flavor in dried chorizo.
Our smoked paprika made the traditional way by drying freshly harvested ripe red pimento peppers in low-lying, adobe smoke houses that are delicately heated by smoking grills fired with slow-burning oak planks. Next it is on to a repeated grinding between stones which results in its signature silky smooth texture.
This smoked paprika is not the bland version you'll find at your local supermarket. You’ll also notice the striking deep red color that evenly spreads through any dish it is added to.
