Ladies,

I worked with a lady who was always making a Paella.  Well, this southern Indiana country girl didn't have a clue what she was making.  It is very healthy and inexpensive to make.  It is one of those dishes that can be altered many ways.  Some use chicken, shrimp, clams, pork, some just forget the meat and use artichoke hearts. 

* 2 Tbs olive oil
* 1 medium onion, peeled and chopped
* 3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
* 2 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
* 1 cup uncooked white rice (not instant)
* 1 tsp dried oregano
* 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
* 1/8 tsp ground turmeric
* 14.5-oz can diced tomatoes, undrained
* 1 red bell pepper, seeded, cored, and cut into small, thin strips
* 1 cup frozen peas
* 2 cups diced cooked chicken

1. In a large pan, heat oil for 30 seconds over medium heat. Add onion and cook 2 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 more minute. Stir in broth, rice, oregano, salt, and turmeric.

2. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, covered, for about 15 minutes.

3. Stir in tomatoes, pepper strips, and peas. Simmer for 5 minutes. Add chicken and cook for 1 more minute, or until paella is hot.

This sounds delicious and easy too!!  I've had paella before but it always seemed like it would be so complicated and hard to make ...    I'm going to have to give this a try sometime soon! Yumm...  yumm...  yumm!
Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Doreen
