Paella is a rice-based dish that originated in the mid-19th century in Valencia, Spain. Ironically although most of us associate the paella with Spain, the Spaniards themselves associate the paella with Valenica instead of  Spain.

Well no matter if it’s Valencia or Spain, a paella is still a delicious and hearty meal – great for families to share! There are 3 main types of paella: the paella valenciana (Valencian), paella de marisco (seafood) and paella mixta (mixed).

As the paella valenciana was originally peasant food, the meat in it tended to be either chicken or rabbit and sometimes snails were added as well. The paella de marisco swaps out those meats for seafood and the paella mixta is basically a freestyle paella, although the most common is to use seafood with chicken and that is what I went for.
