Spanish Rice with Pork

My husband adores mexican food and now that we're living in the south I thought it would be a good idea to incorporate more spice in my cooking (helps to keep you cool) I found a couple spanish rice recipe's here in JAP and worked them with what I had on hand and this is what I came up with. My husband was thrilled, gave it his "Plate Licker" Seal of approval. Try it out and let me know what you think!

Prep:
30 Min
Cook:
1 Hr
Method:
Stove Top

Ingredients

1/2 lb
bacon
3-4
boneless porkchops cubed
2 c
uncooked rice
1 c
chunky salsa ( i use medium, can use mild or hot if you prefer )
1 c
tomato sauce
2 c
frozen peas
4 c
water or chicken broth
1/4 c
chili powder
3 Tbsp
cumin
1 Tbsp
garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

Step-By-Step

1In crockpot or stock pot, render the bacon on high till bacon is cooked through. Add porkchops to the bacon and saute till pork is no longer pink.

2Add rice and stir, toasting it till it's just golden (watch carefully so it doesnt burn) approximately 5 minutes

3Add Salsa, Tomato sauce, Broth (or water), peas, and seasonings and mix thoroughly.

4turn heat down to medium low and simmer, stirring occaisionally till rice has absorbed all the liquid. When I make this on stove top the rice absorbs the liquid a little faster, usually about 30 -45 minutes ... in a crock pot it will take longer... on low, aproximately 3 hours... check to make sure

5enjoy!
