    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    I most always add in some chorizo or smoked dry sausage to this just to boost up the flavor a bit. If you have a large electric fypan, then use it for this recipe. Please include the saffron, it really makes this recipe!

      Very good and very Spanish with the saffron. I used Spanish smoked paprika, so I didn't use "a little more" as it might overpower. I also subbed frozen peas and carrots since that is what was in my freezer. It did make large portions, but my husband ate his all up, it was so good!
