My son needed me to make a "Spanish" recipe for his Spanish class to sample. He chose a chicken paella recipe from a Spanish site online, but some of the measurements were for "bowls". Since I was unsure what amount a "bowl" was, I searched Taste of Home and found this recipe. The ingredients were pretty similar, but I was happy that the TOH recipe called for turmeric instead of saffron, which is very expensive. I don't know how the taste compares, but turmeric at least gives the yellow color of saffron. I doubled this recipe for the class, and it was a hit. Lots of comopliments, and my son's best friend requested that I make it next time he comes over. Very tasty, and I will make again for our family.
