Yum! Be careful with the water, I added too much the first time and washed out the taste a bit!

Definitely a 'keeper' as we say in our house. Really easy midweek meal, very tasty indeed.

Very very easy and very tasty. Really mustn't scrimp on the chorizo though and next time I'll add some mushrooms for a bit more veg

Lovely - but please bear in mind that it is 600g of COOKED rice, which is considerably less that 600g of uncooked rice!

Paella or not, it is fab. We had with chopped tomatoes, extra lemon and garlic, mixed veg instead of peas and 2 diced chicken breasts instead of chorizo. Basically, a different recipe, but defo try it - even the kids wanted more - great way to shove some veg down their beaks.

The dish was lovely but I am appalled at the calorie-counting. My daughter is ill and we have to check she gets a certain number of calories per day, she looked at this recipe and said there's no way this could be 347 calories so I worked it out from the packets, using 250g chorizo and only 400g rice and it came to 778 calories per portion?! Because of the I am VERY dissapointed.

made this dish tonight used spicy chorizo added some left over gammon and cooked rice in stock as suggested, pefect meal that was quick and loved by adults and kids alike. Next time may use frozen seafood mix instead of just prawns.
