How To Make jean's spanish rice

  • 2
    Add to the bacon with the drippings the onion, green pepper that have been cut in small pieces. Also the green chilli if you use fresh and cook till almost done, if you use a small can of cut green chilies put this in later, I'll tell you when.

    Now add your uncooked rice to this and cook till the rice gets white (sometimes I cook it till almost a medium dark brown) it gives it a nutting flavor. Now add your can of enchilada sauce and tomato paste and the can of green chilies if not using fresh ones. Cover this with enough water and cook all the liquid out.I also sometimes almost fry it when it's done.
