Lusog Notes

This dish is high in iron needed for normal metabolism. It is also high in Vitamin A for eye health and niacin, which promotes normal digestion.

Chef's Tip

For a more flavorful paella, allow the chorizo to realease its fat during sautéing. The chorizo fat contains a lot of flavor that will mix with the rice.
