*What can I substitute for sweet smoked paprika?
Smoked paprika is made from peppers that are smoked and dried over oak fires and comes in varying degrees of heat. Smoked paprika comes from Spain and is also called pimenton. Using a different kind of paprika will give you something close but you'll be missing the smokiness. You can sub in chipotle 1 for 1—its got enough heat and smokiness to give you the flavor needed. You can also use liquid smoke but only in half the amount of paprika suggested, it can be overpowering if you use too much.
