For added flavor, prepare using sweet Spanish paprika (pimenton). Made from spicy red peppers that have been smoked and dried over oak fires, this paprika, with its unique smoky flavor, is available in three varieties - sweet and mild (dulce), bittersweet medium hot (agridulce) and hot (picante). Although it is a distant cousin of Hungarian paprika, there really is no substitute for Spanish paprika in authentic Spanish cooking.
