Quick Colorado Paella

40 mins (prep 10, cooking 30)
17 ingredients
4 servings
Considering I am not of Spanish ethnicity, my husband and I have never been to Spain (yet), we live in Colorado (where fresh seafood is not exactly just around the block), and real paella takes a 15-inch pan to make (or something like that), this has got to be the most UN-authentic recipe there is. We don't really care, though. The ingredients are easy to come by, it's quick to make, and the first time I made it, my husband said: "You should make this again!" - repeatedly. The original recipe is from the September 2010 issue of Cooking Light, but this is our version - Colorado-ized.
