  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 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.

I loved this dish! So easy to make and absolutely delicious. If there are just two of you make it for four and either freeze the rest or have it for lunch the next day. Top notch!

I used proper paella rice instead of basmati, chicken stock instead of water and mixed seafood instead of just prawns. I also chucked some black olives and peas in just before serving. It went down really well with the kids as well as my other half and has been requested again.
