Spanish Rice

All the flavors mix together and just work.


  • 1/2 lb. of bacon, cut into bite size pieces.

  • 8 cloves of garlic, optional
  • 1 (a5 oz.) can stewed tomatoes

Cook bacon until done. Remove and drain. Saute onion, peppers, and garlic. When browned, add the rice. Brown for a couple minutes, then add bacon, can of tomatoes, and three cans of water for rice, (sometimes I subsitute V8 for 1 can of water). Let the rice simmer until cooked.
