By hot smoked paprika, I mean a "spicy" variety as opposed to the mild version. Mild would be fine- it's that smoky tinge you are after.Your chipotle idea sounds like a winner. I'm going to try that the next time I make a pot of chili. I've got some smoked paprika on hand, is hot smoked different than regular smoked?
And this is what we use for chipotle. A tablespoon pureed works for us, but we like our chili with a bit of a "burn". Start off with a smaller amount and see how it goes.
