Paella, Ala Electric Skillet

“This recipe is a conglomeration of close to a dozen different recipes found here and elsewhere, modified to suit our spicy/garlickly palates, and adapted for the use of a large electric skillet. The whole process is much easier than it sounds, especially if you do all your chopping/slicing/dicing prior to final assembly. The electric skillet makes the actual cooking a "no-brainer". Thanks for all the great ideas - we absolutely love this dish!”
