Spanish smoked paprika is made from nora chiles, which are called pimiento choricero. They are always used dried and are essential to authentic Spanish and Basque cooking. Nora chiles impart an earthy, mild, fruity flavour and fragrance and a rich red colour to soups, stews, sauce (romesco) and rice dishes (paella, arroz a banda), and notably, sausages. They particularly complement seafood (bacalao a la Vizcaína), as well as poultry. Try in mashed potatoes, crab cakes or octopus stew. 

Nora Chiles are the perfect way to add a little spice to your life. These mildly spicy chiles are great in sauces, soups, or just about anything else you can think of. They add a delicious depth of flavor that will leave you wanting more. Try them today and see for yourself how good they can be.
