Ground red bell pepper goes very well in stir fry. It can also be used in spaghetti sauce and other foods that call for bell pepper. Ground yellow and orange bell peppers can also be used in these same foods as they are very close in taste to the red ones. And a mix of all three is a good choice too. Paprika is sometimes made with ground red bell pepper and that is used in goulash, soups, stews, and other sauces. Therefore, in the absence of paprika for a recipe the ground bell pepper can be used as a substitute.
