Spanish Rice

This recipe got my attention because it had BACON in it. It was a different, but very good spanish rice. It was very easy to make, but does have a kick to it. Next time I will use one can of Rotel tomatoes and one can of diced tomatoes. We liked the flavor the bacon gave....but then again, who doesn't like bacon???
