Ingredients
1 lb. bacon
1 green bell pepper, diced
3 small onions, chopped
2 1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
2 cups canned tomatoes
1 cup raw rice

Simmer vegetables and spices in a saucepan. At the same time, fry the bacon. When bacon is done, remove from pan and crumble into small pieces. Drain off all but 3 tbsp. of fat, to which you add the raw rice. Let rice brown lightly. Add the vegetables and bacon; let simmer over very low heat for 30 minutes. Check after 20 minutes to see if it is drying out. If so, add more tomatoes, or some water, or a combination of both.
