    the kind you would get at a portuguese/spanish/barbecue type restaurant.

    reason im asking is because i ate about a 7lbs of it just now with the whole chicken i ordered from down the street to my work.

    It's saffron. Used in various Oriental medicines.

    There isn't much of it in paella at all tho.

    It's like white rice with coloring? Probably just as bad as white rice. Maybe cooked in oil as well, it's know to go directly to Hispanic women's asses.

    saffron is typically used.... now as for paella countries make them diff. in spain, they love to dump tons of vegtable oil in it which makes it taste like :barf: mexican paella is less oily..
