Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Paella is really a meal in itself. Offer refreshing lemon sherbet and shortbread cookies for dessert.
  • tip 2
    Paella is the Gypsy contraction of the Spanish words para and ella, meaning "for her."
  • tip 3
    If you don't have shrimp on hand, use a 5-ounce can of chunk chicken instead.
