This is actually a very versatile dish and you can cook it in any way you want as long as you follow the basic rules of making it. It is traditionally made with rabbit and chicken but you can omit the rabbit if you want to. If you love eating seafood and have access to plenty of it then you can incorporate that too into your paella. It is also possible to add a lot of vegetables to it in order to make it more nutritious. Peas and red peppers go very well with the seafood and chicken used to make this dish.
