Latin-Style Paella (Annatto Seeds)

Here, annatto seeds are cooked briefly in olive oil until they sizzle, then they're discarded. The seeds lend a subtle earthy flavor to the oil, which is used to cook the ingredients for this paella; they also imbue the dish with rich orange-red color.

Delicious one dish meal
July 1, 2012
I've made this paella a few times now, and it's fantastic. I add about 1/2-1 cup of frozen peas, a can of garbanzo beans and about 2T of lemon juice to the base recipe. I've also made it with and without the roasted bell peppers, and will likely omit them in the future.
Pros: Kid-Friendly, Healthy, Adaptable, Will Make Again

We absolutely love this recipe!

I love this recipe because it doesn't call for saffron, which in my area is a lot more expensive than annatto (achiote). I sometimes replace the chorizo with "soyrizo" and it's still absolutely delicious. My husband and children love this one, and I've done different styles of paellas. This one is my favorite.

I made this recipe for my boyfriend and he ended up taking the spoon to the pot! I added more seafood to it but kept all the ingredients that it calls for. I keep getting requests for it!
