Ingredients:  
Paella – Puerto Rican style
One tablespoon olive oil
2 cups of rice – medium grain is ok
4 cups of chicken stock (may need more) have to judge as it is cooking
1 onion chopped
3 cloves garlic chopped
2 tablespoons of recaito (goya – green paste in jar)
2 tablespoons sofrito (Goya-red sauce in jar)
Six ounces cut in pieces of:
• Chorizo
• Bacon
• Logoniza or Italian sausage
• Chicken breast
• Pork (I use a small shredded smoked pork butt)
½ cup gandules drained and rinsed (goya looks like peas)
½ cup green peas – I prefer frozen
Saffron threads (20 crushed and soaked in a little white wine) or 2 packets of sazon with achiote y tomate (Goya brand is what I use. Often I do both saffron and the sazon packets)
Tsp of sweet paprika
Small jar roasted red peppers

Personal Notes:
Traditional Spanish dish cooked on a fire or grill, you will want a Paella Pan to cook it in. Laura Daugherty got me a paella pan for Father’s Day and it has been a family favorite on our big green egg smoker.
