Tootsie’s Spanish Rice
This is my Mom’s recipe, a classic, brings back some sweet memories…She would make it with red chile sometimes, sometimes with steak, always with tortillas. I still remember the delicious aroma that filled the house.
1 small onion
1 green pepper
1/4 lb. cubed bacon
1 – 17oz can stewed tomatoes
Salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste
1 cup uncooked minute rice
3 cups water
Fry bacon, add onion and green pepper, saute. Add stewed tomatoes, simmer about 20 minutes.
In separate pan bring water to boil, add rice and stir constantly until rice is done. Drain and rinse well, add rice to other ingredients.
