Paprika is a primary ingredient in many of Spain's best-known dishes, including paella and patatas bravas. El Avion makes this hot and smoky one, packaged in a collectible vintage tin, with ripe peppers that are smoke-dried over slow-burning oak. It's best used to add heat to tomato sauces, soups and casseroles, and poultry dishes.
Word from the Expert
The flavor of this paprika is key to making great chorizo or chistorra. It adds such a great depth of flavor to all tapas. It's a key staple to any pantry. -Jamie Bissonnette, curator of the Spain Box
