Method

  1. Boil the kettle. In a non-stick frying or shallow pan with a lid, fry the onion, peppers, chorizo and garlic in the oil over a high heat for 3 mins. Stir in the rice and chopped tomatoes with 500ml boiling water, cover, then cook over a high heat for 12 mins.
  2. Uncover, then stir – the rice should be almost tender. Stir in the prawns, with a splash more water if the rice is looking dry, then cook for another min until the prawns are just pink and rice tender.

I have put this recipe in my binder to try at a later date. It sounds good to me and quick and easy to cook for when you do not have much time!

This was lovely, could do with a bit of extra spice or something added into it though! I added extra chorizo because it didn't seem enough, but all in all it's a simple recipe that takes hardly any time to cook!

I like my food spicy so I finely shredded a single Jalapeno chilli into the mix to warm it up and a pinch of saffron just because I love saffron.
I have also added mussels and some flakes of smoked mackerel over the top just before serving. It's a very versatile dish and I really enjoy putting a large dish out at barbecues, always goes down well.
I am using some crabs legs this week and have acquired some langoustines to really posh it up! Can't wait.

I thought this tasted of nothing....totally bland, looks very promising but just missing something, sorry :(

Made this and enjoyed it. I like spicy food, so added half a red chilli and a splash of hot sauce. However, I felt something was still missing.

I would make this agin, but think next time I will use a chicken stock cube.

Yummy recipe.... added some turkey breast diced and used 2 x chicken oxo and some paprika in the water for the rice and all my family loved it. I served it with some crusty bread which mopped up the juices ! Will definitely do this recipe again and again.

It's boring and bland. Little bit of salt, chilly, lemon juice, pepper, maybe even tinny bit of sugar. Only then we have flavour. I often make it, but add courgette, cook rice separately and then serve covered with delicious tomato-vegi souse. It has to have a flavour, spicy is good.

I've made this loads of times, it's so easy and really tasty although you definitely need to add salt. I put the cooked frozen prawns in right at the end and then just heat through.

I've cooked a lot of recipes from the BBC Good Food site and magazine and this is the first big disappointment - very, very bland and I won't be repeating it.

I wish I'd thought to use stock instead of water, that might have helped but even adding a large dollop of soy sauce at the very end didn't help. What a shame!

This dish was absolutely delicious. It was super tasty and we couldn't believe how quick and simple it was. We added some chicken stock instead of water to add a little extra flavour which worked perfectly. We followed the hob version. I will be making again and again. Will try with brown rice time instead of white to make it a little healthier.

I found this tasty but lacking a little something. I would definitely eat it again as its a great low fat recipe. I would add chopped chilli and perhaps some paprika next time. I would also use chicken or veg stock as it tasted a bit watery. I used cooked chicken instead of prawns.

This recipe is lovely. I made a few alterations such as using chicken stock rather than water and arborio rice rather than long grain. I also added extra chorizo, replaced the prawns with chicken, and used chipotle chilis to add heat and smokey flavour. It was seriously delicious. I will definitely be making this again.

I love this recipe! made it a few times now and made it for the boyfriend and he keeps requesting it!

I added a few chillis to give it a nice kick and added a chicken stock cube. Fantastic!

Great recipe if you tweak it a bit to suit your taste. I liked the idea of this recipe but it did seem a bit bland.
So I used chicken stock, added paprika and saffron, some cooked chicken pieces along with the prawns and some peas. Was delicious - husband and kids enjoyed it too!

A very easy & tasty recipe, I added a chicken stock cube, smoked paprika & some chilli flakes. I will be cooking it again for my husband when he's due home :O)

Tasty and filling. I made this in the oven which made it a really simple meal in our busy family! I added a chicken stock cube and a teaspoon of cajun spices. The flavour from the chorizo was delicious. We will be having this again!

Easy, tasty and excellent. The quality of your chorizo really makes or breaks this dish. It's a simple great dish. My favourite.
