Hot Paprika

Does anyone know where I can find Pride of Szeged Hot Paprika or any Hungarian hot paprika?

  1. It's available at Amazon and would guess I got mine at our local market, Major Market in Escondido.

        Please call first and make sure they have it, I bought mine awhile ago.

        Thank you very much! I've heard a lot about Tip Top Meats, I'll have to venture up there - thanks again:)

          Hey honkman,

          Thanks for mentioning Tip Top Meats!

          I went to their website and it looks like a great place...d;^)

            It's good place to get some European ingredients and the butcher is very good but the restaurant is underwhelming with lousy old-fashioned "German tourist" food.

              My granny was German and got me interested in cooking,

              It might just be a blast from the past.

              Plus that BIG JOHN BREAKFAST looks interesting...d;^)

              BTW: Neet blog!

        2. If you have military shopping privileges, the main commissary store on the 32nd Street Naval Base has Pride of Szeged paprika. Do you have a family Chicken Paprikas recipe you would like to share?

            Sandiegomike, YES!! I have an awesome recipe - let me go find it and I will post here:)

          2. I buy mine at Great News in Pacific Beach. Great gourmet store and cooking school with very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Sign up for their newsletter and get 20% off coupons. Worth a field trip if you haven't been...they carry almost everything you can think of.

            1. I think that most large supermarkets carry Hungarian paprika these days (usually the Pride of Szeged brand).
              If you're buying some, make sure you buy a can of the regular Hungarian Sweet (not hot) paprika as well. The sweet variety is the one that the Hungarians made famous, and is the one that is used more often in Hungarian cooking...especially in dishes like Chicken Paprikas.
