4cups cooked rice
1 onion-diced
1 green pepper-diced
1-15oz. can diced tomatoes
2tbl. minced garlic
salt and pepper to taste
( Occasionally she would add a little taco seasoning to make it spicier)

Fry bacon in a skillet until almost crisp. drain bacon drippings.
Add the onion, garlic and green peppers. Cook until peppers are soft.
stir in the tomatoes, tomato paste,salt and pepper. Mix well. Add rice and serve.


  1. I am dying to learn how to make spanish rice. I love to order it but haven't been able to make it as good. I will have to try this recipe. I would love to see a photo.

  2. I'm planning to add photos soon, I'll have to go on a cooking spree and invite the family over, lol. I don't know if this is an authentic Spanish rice,my family does a lot of fusion cooking.
