“My mother in law has developed an aversion to hot spicy foods so I have adapted our usual family favourite chilli by reducing the heat and increasing the flavour with the use of paprika,, (it must be smoked Paprika) It is so popular it has now become a regular addition to our family favourites. If you do want some extra heat just add 1/2 teaspoon of chilli powder or a few dashes of tobasco. Delicious served with plain boiled rice or favourite savoury rice, we prefer my Aztec rice #448815”
