Smoked paprika is one of my favorite things! We don't particularly like chorizo, so we used one of the other types of sausages recommended as a substitute. Overall it was a tasty dish, but it just didn't really "wow" me. We'll definitely make it again, though, because it's easy and not too difficult.

We love paella and this is a great recipe. I make this with smoked turkey sausage and chicken instead of chorizo and turkey. Also, since saffron is so expensive, I substitute tumeric. The smoked paprika really makes a difference in this dish, it adds depth. Prior to finding this recipe, I was just usually regular paprika....now I'll be sticking with the smoked paprika!

I really loved this recipe and will definately make it again. I followed the recipe as written except I left out the tomatoes (unintentionally, just forgot them and didn't miss them either!) and used basmati rice because that was what I had! Yum!
