La Chinata Smoked Paprika – Hot. The La Vera region of Spain produces a particularly high quality smoked paprika. Before grinding, the peppers are not dried by the sun, but instead by the traditional method of oak smoking, resulting in an unmistakably smoky taste. This Smoked Spanish Paprika, or Pimentón de La Vera, is excellent for flavoring stews, sauces, and meats. Product of Spain.

This paprika is really nicely balanced. The heat doesn’t overpower the underlying paprika flavor and the smokiness is authentic, not artificial-tasting like some brands I’ve tried. I will definitely order this brand again.
