  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.

This was just average for me

This is absolutly dull. The entire meal is lacking in flavour. I do not claim th be a good cook but even I was staggered at how bland this turned out to be.

Nice idea, but there was no taste to it unfortunately. Had to modify it by adding a bit of fish sauce and chillies, but it didn't really help. Disappointed :(

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!

Really tasty tea although I did add a little salt. Really easy and kid enjoyed it as well

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.
31st Aug, 2013 you cooked a totally different dish? well done,
