A very traditional paella with chorizo, chicken, peas, squid, mussels and prawns. The saffron and chorizo give this one-pan meal a gorgeous red hue. A paella pan is recommended.
THIS IS NOT TRADITIONAL PAELLA!! I'm from Valencia (Spain) and i usually eat paellas. I would never eat this kind of rice in a paella pan! We never use chorizo, onion, wine (what the hell!!), peas, or mussels! This is not paella, this is rice with everything you find on the fridge!It's disgusting! If you had this dish in Spain you've been conned.... Please, change the name of the recipe! - 08 May 2009
I wouldn't ever use arborio rice for this recipe again, it's too creamy and once it's done the consistency isn't right - paella isn't supposed to be like a risotto. - 21 Jul 2008
My partner very much enjoyed this and I'll definitely make it again. - 14 Aug 2010
