I made quite a few modifications to suit my taste and halved the recipe. Sauteed onion, frozen peas n carrots in olive oil. Added some garlic and rice till browned. Instead of the extra can of tomatoes plus or minus the green chilies, i used 1 cup chicken broth. Instead of tomato sauce i used 1 tbsp tomato paste. Covered, brought to a boil then turned heat to low and set the timer for 20 minites. After the 20 minutes undisturbed, turned heat off and came back 10 minutes later to fluff with a fork. Didn't use green chilies or bacon. It was really good and easy to make!

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.
