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

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In 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.
2
Add rice and stir, toasting it till it's just golden (watch carefully so it doesnt burn) approximately 5 minutes
3
Add Salsa, Tomato sauce, Broth (or water), peas, and seasonings and mix thoroughly.
4
turn 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
5
enjoy!
