Gorgeous color and lively flavors come with the addition of paprika. Some people find the Hungarian variety spicier and the Spanish type sweeter. Others can hardly taste any difference. Flavors will be enhanced when paprika is added to your food near the end of the cooking time. In Europe, Hungarian Paprika is used almost exclusively as a spice rather than a coloring agent. Used with cheese, eggs, potatoes, pasta, sauces, dressings, soups.
