A Guide to Paprika

Paprika is one of the most common spices in America. For decades it’s been an iconic classic for dishes like deviled eggs, and it’s one of those common cover-ups for bland chicken breasts. It’s also received quite a bit of attention in recent years from food journalism, prompting many readers to righteously toss out their ancient, lifeless bottles and take to merchants or the internet in search of the “right stuff.”

And then they hit an impasse. Like most spices, paprika has different varieties or grades. But it surpasses others in terms of just how many of those varieties are easily obtainable.

What about the taste? Does paprika taste different than generic chili powder?

It does. Chili powder itself typically has a more seasoning-like taste due to the mix of other ingredients in it. Overall it’s usually a lot more earthy in flavor. Generic paprika – with its pimento base – will taste sweeter than this. It’s a simpler flavor and more pure to the chilies it came from.

What Can I Use as a Substitute for Cayenne Powder in Cooking? Answer: Paprika

Ground from dried red chili peppers, cayenne has been used to spice up meals for at least 9,000 years. Cayenne gets its heat from capsaicin, a substance that acts as a pain reliever. Cayenne is a common ingredient in many Cajun and Creole recipes, as well as Asian and Mexican foods. If you find yourself without cayenne in the middle of cooking, there are several easy substitutions from which to choose.

There are many types of paprika available, some spicier than others. Spanish and Hungarian paprika in particular are hotter than common American and Chinese paprika. Made from dried red peppers, paprika is a good substitute for cayenne pepper, although paprika’s taste is smokier than that of cayenne powder. Hotter types of paprika can be substituted at a one-to-one ratio for cayenne powder. To use regular, mild paprika, the University of Missouri Extension service recommends a mix of half paprika and half chili powder.
