Hungarians adopted Paprika as their national spice, using it generously in their goulashes, stews and chicken dishes. Add it to chili recipes along with other chili powders, or use it as a garnish sprinkled on deviled eggs or potato salad. Hungarian Paprika lends an appealing flavor to dishes as well as a beautiful deep-red color. Resist the temptation to cook the same this over and over.
