Excuse me but, DOLLAR STORE PAPRIKA !?!?! That stuff is most likely older than WWII VETS!
Hungarian and Spanish Paprika are from different types of peppers, chiles, and have different flavors and aromatic notes. There are even a variety of intensities and qualities within the more generic distinctions Hungarian and Spanish.
When it comes to Paprika as one part of a multi ingredient recipe, yes the highest quality flavors may be lost but if each component is of high quality the end result will be high quality.
Please accept my apology if I have insulted anyone, I am just passionate about flavor and quality.
