Sausage and chicken are good additions to the paella too; saute them in a separate skillet and add to the paella at the end of cooking.

I have never cooked Spanish food before and I was really nervous! This Paella was quick, easy, and made my 2 year old happy... Score!

Not very much flavor. I ended up adding garlic salt, Cajun seasoning, and chili powder to try and give it more flavor. Ended up more like a jumbalya than paella and was delicious.
