Paprika, Spanish Sweet
Paprika is a sweet but sassy relative of the chili pepper. For mildest flavor, choose the Spanish variety; for a bit more more pizzazz, go Hungarian.
Paprika is a ground spice made from dried red fruits of the larger and sweeter varieties of the plant Capsicum annuum, called bell pepper or sweet pepper. The most common variety used for making paprika is tomato pepper, sometimes with the addition of more pungent varieties, called chili peppers, and cayenne pepper.
