This rice has a little bit of a sweeter taste than most spanish rice dishes I've had. It sure does make your house smell good when you're preparing it. This recipe was shared by a long-time family friend.
In a 10-inch skillet, cook the 8 slices of bacon until crisp; remove the bacon. Pour off half of the bacon fat and discard. Cook the onion and green pepper in the remaining fat until tender. Do not brown the veggies.
Add all the other ingredients and stir together. Cover and simmer for 35 to 40 minutes. Crumble the bacon on top.
