@purplespark: This is an easy recipe for Spanish rice with a little twist to it. It is cooked in a cast iron skillet. It has bacon in it and is absolutely delicious! You need 6 to 8 pieces of bacon, ½ cup chopped onion, ½ cup chopped green bell pepper, 1 can stewed tomatoes, 1 small can tomato sauce, 1 cup rice, salt and pepper to taste.
Fry the bacon in your cast iron skillet. Remove the cooked bacon and set aside. In the bacon grease, sauté the onion and pepper over medium heat. Cut up the stewed tomatoes and add to the skillet with ½ can of water. Add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes. Crumble the bacon over the top and serve.
