Description

Paella is so good, but requires so much. Try this inexpensive and truly tasty version for an easy weeknight meal!

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 4 ounces, weight Mexican Chorizo
  • 1 whole White Onion, Chopped
  • 2 whole 6-ounce Chicken Breasts, Cubed
  • ½ cups Roasted Red Bell Pepper, Chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Oregano
  • 1 teaspoon Turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Pepper
  • ½ teaspoons Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1-½ cup Long Grain Rice
  • 4 cups Water
  • 1 cup Frozen Peas

Preparation

Heat the olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the chorizo and onion, stir to combine and let it sit and caramelize/soften for about 5-7 minutes. Add the cubed chicken and stir to combine, letting it cook for about 5 minutes.

Add the chopped roasted red bell pepper, minced garlic, paprika, oregano, turmeric, salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes and rice. Stir everything to combine, and then add the water. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat, cover, and allow to cook for about 30 minutes until the rice is tender.

Remove from the heat, stir in the frozen peas, replace the lid and let the pot sit off the heat for 5-10 minutes. Serve hot!
