Spanish Rice Original

Spanish Rice Original

recipe from AllRecipes see it here .. great reviews on this recipe

This rice is really good, I needed to add a lil more chicken broth along the way because the broth got low and the rice was sticking but it has a little spiciness to it which is soo yummy. I dont add corn or olives to mine (ick) but I wish I would have had bell peppers . Ill definitely make this again. Ohh I made Pork Enchiladas out of the Pork Carnitas recipe that I have on here YUMMO

P.S almost forgot to add, I didnt use bacon in this at all but did use some bacon fat for browning the veggies and rice


  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 1 cup uncooked white rice
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 2 green bell peppers, diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 (10 ounce) can sliced black olives, drained (optional)
  • 1 (10 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained (optional)


  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine chicken broth and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil while cooking the following.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until evenly brown. Chop bacon, and set aside, reserving the bacon fat. Add onion to skillet, and saute until tender. Stir in rice, and cook until lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Pour in boiling chicken broth and tomato sauce. Add diced tomatoes, green peppers, and chopped bacon. Season with chili powder, salt, and pepper. Cover, and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes. Stir in black olives and corn.

My kids like spanish rice but I've yet to try it myself. It's so easy too! Where do you get bacon grease? Do you just save it? This may be a stupid question but how?

Happy (belated) New Year!
