Bacon and Chard Quick Rice

Tammy Brownlow


I got a good deal on minute rice that I just couldn't pass up. So now the challenge is how to make it so that it doesn't taste like minute rice (:

This recipe worked very well and you can play with it adding all of your favorite veggies and broth flavorings.
