Spanish Style Rice


I was recently sent some samples of Tilda Basmati Rice to try out and decided to develop this easy one-pot oven baked rice dish, with a Spanish twist. Chorizo and Prawns are always a good combination and with peppers, onions and garlic added to the mix I knew it would be a winner (both kids cleaned their plates which is a good indication). It literally is a bung it all in and leave it type dish- perfect for busy families who still want to eat healthy home cooked meals.
