This is the easiest way to cook a Spanish mixed paella and still can call it paella. The ingredients are also easy to find everywhere. This rice recipe is cooked in a paella -hence its name- which is a round and flat steel or iron pan with two handles. If you don't have a paella use a large pan (30-35 cms. diameter per 4-6 servings approx.). The amounts are for fresh ingredients but you can also use canned and/or frozen ones.
