  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.

p.s. I also left out the chorizo and used red onions (x2)!

Fantastic! This is one of the easiest full meals that I've ever made. Very little mess, very little preparation and very tasty! I added chili flakes and a little demerara sugar to the dish. Very tasty.

Lovely mid-week meal.

Lovely one pot recipe!! Very easy, and tasty too! I used long grain rice, chicken stock and added paprika. I needed more stock and longer cooking to get the rice tender, but happy with the results - AND - it made enough for more than 4 people - which doesn't usually happen with BBC recipes!!

Good tasty mid week meal, was lacking something , perhaps some chicken?

This was incredibly quick and easy. However, it was very bland despite my adding paprika, saffron, a lot of black pepper and green olives. Next time (and I will be making it again as it was so simple) I'll also try chicken stock and white wine. A good basic recipe but you will want to play around and create your own version.

Super easy & hugely tasty recipe. I increased the chorizo to 100g & added black olives too. Will definately be making this again & will try some other variations too. Ideal for making when you have guests so your not tied to cooker it pretty much cooks itself!

Lovely dish, however, a few alterations make it so: more chorizo A red chilli Chicken or veg stock cube Peas Enjoy :)

Quick and easy but really very bland - needs a little something but not sure what. Any suggestions? Used chicken stock instead of water but still pretty tasteless. I would fry off the chorizo before adding anything else to the pan next time as it looked a bit pale.

Enjoyed it, though would just spice it up a bit next time.
