Spanish Smoked Sweet Paprika ia also known as Pimenton de la Vera, Dulce. It is a popular ingredient in many Mediterranean recipes. Anyone from Spain swears by this paprika, and its flavor is essential for authentic Spanish cooking. The peppers are dried, slowly over an oak burning fire for several weeks. The result is a sweet, cool, smokey flavor.

Oh, Beautiful Sweetness!
I did not purchase La Chinata’s Sweet Smoked Paprika from Amazon, but I have tried this product. In short, I can only say it is beautiful. It’s like a soft silk caressing the tongue. It imparts a smokey flavor that is enhanced by the unique flavor of Paprika, only this paprika is one of the best I have ever tried. There is more depth to it as it hits every surface of your tongue. Goes well on many things, though in my household we prefer it on fish with color, such as salmon. This also goes well on white-meat chicken, adding flavor to an otherwise rather flavorless meat (just a side note: organic, free-range chicken is always more flavorful than prepackaged, frozen, “housed” chicken). Though this paprika is sweet, it is great for savory dishes. I highly recommend trying it!
This Sweet Smoked Paprika from Spain is really smoky and sweet. You can really taste the difference than those spices in the grocery store. No comparison. It really brings alive the taste of anything you put it on. I will buy this product again.
I have used this in several dishes and the smoky flavor really comes through. The only problem I had is that I couldn’t open the lid. I had to use a can opener to get it to work. I would buy it again.

The best spice in my cabinet!
This is a great rub for chicken and beef or any meat. Bought this because started a diet plan and was omitting sauces and gravies. You will never miss them with this sweet smoky perfection. Just saute meat in a little olive oil and use this with salt and garlic. Like a 4 star restaurant!! Love it in my homemade veggie soup brings it to life.
Love, Love, Love
Had been watching Food Network shows and kept seeing Smoked Paprika, but had not found any in our local stores. We now use this on almost all meats. Absolutely love the flavor.
Not your grocery store paprika
This is the first paprika I have used that didn’t come from the grocery store, so those products are my only frame of reference. That being said….WOW!! What an amazing flavor. I was not aware what paprika was capable of on the palette, until now. I added about a quarter teaspoon to a small pot of fresh picked Lima beans, quartered tomatoes, a hock bone and a tablespoon of Grey Poupon mustard. I can only say that I wish I had made more for next day leftovers!!
Smoky, slightly sweet and sooo delicious. Can’t wait to try it in other dishes. Also looking forward to trying the other paprikas in this line.
This product has a nice balance of color granulation and smoky flavor. It arrived fresh and the tin appears to keep it that way.
