Paprika is made by first drying and then grinding red peppers (Pimientos) into a fine powder. The unique flavor of smoked paprika is created by drying them in an oak wood oven. The mild (Dulce) quality is derived from a type of pimiento that does not possess the intensity of the hot pimiento. Originating in Southern Mexico, the plant used to produce paprika was brought by Spaniards to Hungary where it has become an essential ingredient in both Hungarian and Spanish cuisines.
