The aji paprika chile is one that you may call reserved – there’s practically zero heat involved so you may wonder why even call a chile when what we consider the defining characteristic of one is nearly absent. Just like Emma Woodhouse or Elizabeth Bennet, this pepper chooses not to totally conform to what society thinks it should be. After all, heat can be so boring when every other pepper is doing it simply because they’re expected to.

Instead, this spice hailing from Mexico and South America is vaunted for its orange-y flavor and mild sweetness. Toasted, the smell of citrus becomes dominant and the pepper flavor that can be so secondary in other chiles debuts itself. For a riff on the standard deviled egg, eschew the powder and blend a toasted and reconstituted whole paprika in with the yolks.
