Spanish Rice

Last night I made the BEAN FLAUTAS that Amy had posted about a while back. They were so great! I will definitely be making them again! They were delish dipped in guacamole.

I also made Spanish rice to go with them. I finally got my the recipe my grandma Lunt used to make (that my mom uses). It is so yummy!

Here it is:

4 slices bacon, cooked, cooled, crumbled (reserve the grease)
1/4 C onion, chopped
1/2 C bell pepper, chopped
10 oz. can tomato soup + can full of water
3/4 C rice (uncooked)
4 whole cloves (optional, but so good!)

Add onion and pepper to grease on medium heat and let brown. Add tomato soup and water. Add rice and cloves. Simmer until it starts to thicken, stirring often. Cover and cook on medium low until moisture is absorbed. All together, time is about 1 hour. Remove cloves, and add bacon before serving.

*This recipe is very yummy prepared as described, but since I have issues with meat these days, I omitted the bacon and just cooked the onion and peppers in a little olive oil. I also used brown rice, which takes more time to soften.
