Are there alternatives to paprika and capsicum (peppers)?

I have an allergy to everything in the capsicum family (including chilli and paprika) and would love to be able to find alternatives.

    Sorry to hear that, hot peppers are so good for us! Nevertheless, most times peppers are not the star of the show, just there for flavoring something else. So if you can't have them, just omit, or use something else like mushrooms or olives. As for a spice, if you want some heat, you might be able to have cumin or in some dishes, cinnamon might be appropriate.
