Mouth wateringly tasty! Made enough for 4 people and my husband and I troughed the lot between us!

This was a gorgeous meal, made in a flash and enjoyed by all, including my 1 year old! Ok so it's not paella in the true sense, but who cares. We loved it!

Extremely quick to make, don't scrimp on the chorizo as it really flavours the rice
