You might try to Google it.I'm not really sure when the Spanish
started using paprika.The City of San Antonio,Tx was founded by families from the Canary Islands.I'll check and see if there is a website about them,and any recipes.Most of the cooking around here really sin't spanish, it's texmex,and any very ancient recipes
from the islands most likely have been altered over the centuries.
When I think of paprika,I think of the country of Hungary, the homeland of my mom's parents who came here in 1919-1920,right after the First World War.The paprika grown in Hungary is world famous and many dishes use it.
I'm not sure how much the spanish use the spice.
