Tips & Notes

  • Shopping Tip: Smoked paprika is a spice made from ground smoke-dried red peppers. It’s available in some large supermarkets with other spices and at tienda.com.
  • Tip: To remove corn from the cob, stand an uncooked ear of corn on its stem end in a shallow bowl and slice the kernels off with a sharp, thin-bladed knife.
