Once the ingredients are cleaned and chopped, it is time to start cooking. Saute the ingredients, (like onions, tomatoes, chicken and pork) according to the recipe.

Remember that if you are using a charcoal barbecue, the coals need to be covered in ash. As soon as the charcoal is ready, begin cooking, so that the heat does not die out before the paella is finished cooking.
