Spanish Rice Dish Recipe

The bacon adds tremendous flavor to this spicy dish. I learned this tip from a friend while living in New Mexico. It's great served with any Mexican meal, or as a side dish with hamburgers or chicken.

MY REVIEW

Excellent recipe! Couldn't be any easiser.... just put everything in a pot and simmer. I was so glad to find a spanish rice recipe that called for regular rice instead of instant. I did not use any bacon. I used Basmati rice and instead of using 2 large cans of diced tomatoes, I used only 1 and added 2 cups of chicken broth along with the sauce and diced tomatoes w/green chilies. I couldn't find canned chopped green chilies so I used 1/4 cup of sliced canned jalapenos that I chopped. I also added cumin, garlic powder and kidney beans like one reviewer suggested. I ommitted the salt d/t using the broth. The flavor was outstanding. It had a nice bite to it because of the jalapenos and we topped it with a dollop of sour cream. My husband and I wanted something other than just steamed rice and this really hit the spot. Another great recipe to fall back onto!

I halved the recipe. And made a couple of additions, I added cumin, and garlic powder. Plus when it was done I added a can of drained and rinsed kidney beans.

Actually, it could be a complete meal, by the addition of dry cooked beans. Because beans and rice make a complete protein. Will definitely make this again.
