The Difference Between Sweet, Hot, and Smoked Paprika

All paprika is made from the ground skins and flesh of dried red peppers. It’s the variety of red peppers used that separates sweet, hot, and smoked paprika.

Paprika in its simplest form is made from grinding sweet pepper pods to create the iconic bright red powder. But depending on the variety of paprika, the colour can range from a bright orange-red to a deep blood red and the flavour can be anything from sweet and mild to bitter and hot.
