    I loved this, as did my whole family and guests. I've made it twice already, a winner.

    ingredients say "1 instant white rice". Is that a cup or something else?

    @Christine~ Hi this is Chef Heather from Food on the Table. Thanks for bringing the typo regarding the rice measurement to our attention! I have adjusted the measurement to show 1 cup; however if you wanted to stretch this meal to feed more people you could get away with adding 1 1/2 to 2 cups of rice.

    @Anonymous~ You are correct in that Spanish dishes are called Paella. Typically Paella consists of any chicken, pork, seafood or vegetable combination that goes well with rice. Traditionally Paella is seasoned with saffron, which gives the rice it's beautiful and unique yellow color.

    This was very good, I doubled the peas for extra veggies and also doubled the rice and bouillion (made separate and added) and I don't like peas and it was good! My hubby and toddler daughter liked it, but my 3 yr. old son did not.

    Spanish chorizo always a winner (especially with my 2YO and 4YO who eat it up like it's candy) great idea!

    I don't think bullion cubes are gluten free. Can you omit them and just use chicken broth?

    Of course leave out water too.

    Anonymous, you are absolutely right you can substitute chicken broth for the water and bouillon called for in this recipe. For future reference though, Herb-Ox Bouillon Cubes and Better than Bouillon are gluten free, according to their product websites.

    Thank you Chef! That is great information! I really appreciate it when people like you care enough to check out and give this extra information. Label reading is very time consuming. Thanks again!

    This was really good, my whole family was impressed! Next time I will be using brown rice though! :-) I also used frozen peas with carrots since that is what I had.

    I added corn instead of peas. My 9 yo loved it! It may be obvious, but the directions have me removing & draining the sausage but no instructions to add it back in. I just threw it in with the broth mixture but had to read several times thinking I missed a step.

    Hi Jenni! Thank you for pointing out this typo. You were right with adding the sausage when adding the peas. I have edited the recipe to include this step. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
