Another family favourite, goes great with enchiladas or tacos. I frequently add frozen mixed vegetables (to the rice just before step 3.) If you don't have or don't want the bacon, no worries. Just use a couple Tablespoons of shortening or butter to cook the onion, garlic and rice. Recipe can be easily doubled for a larger gathering.

How To Make hearty spanish rice
In a large skillet, cook the bacon, reserving bacon fat. Drain on paper towels and crumble; set aside. Saute the onion and garlic in the reserved fat until onion is translucent.
Add the uncooked rice to the bacon fat/onion mixture in the skillet. Cook, stirring, several minutes.
Stir in the canned tomatoes, tomato sauce, water, green chile, chili powder, brown sugar, worchestershire sauce, hot sauce, salt and pepper. Bring to boiling, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat.
Cover and simmer on low heat until rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, about 20-30 mins. Top with grated cheese and crumbled bacon.
