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.

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
