Here, we're calling on the bold, bright flavors of Spanish cuisine by coating our rice, spinach, and roasted peppers in a blend of traditional spices like paprika, cumin, and more, then baking it all under a layer of rich chorizo. You'll finish the dish with a drizzle of creamy fig sauce and tangy pickled peppers.
