Mixed Paella
by Maggi Magic

Paella is cooked over an open fire, fueled by orange and pine branches along with pine cones. Also, dinner guests traditionally eat directly out of the paellera. Paella usually has a layer of toasted rice at the bottom of the pan called socarrat in Spain. Add some Spanish flair to the party with this deliciously hearty dish!
