Pimentón (or Paprika) is one of the most ubiquitously used spices of Spanish cooking. Made from ground, dried red chile peppers, Pimentón is used in making sausages, soups, stews and is generously sprinkled on top of eggs, octopus, and even French fries (seriously, try it!) The spice is categorized by its heat: Pimentón Dulce (Sweet); Pimentón Agridulce (Medium Hot) and Pimentón Picante (Hot.)
