  1. Bring chicken broth and tomato sauce to a boil in a small saucepan, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and maintain a simmer while preparing the remaining ingredients.
  2. Meanwhile, place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate, reserving bacon grease in the skillet. Chop bacon.
  3. Cook and stir onion in reserved bacon grease over medium heat until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in rice; cook and stir until lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Pour boiling chicken broth and tomato sauce into rice mixture; add diced tomatoes, green peppers, and chopped bacon. Season with chili powder, salt, and pepper. Cover and simmer until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 30 to 40 minutes. Stir black olives and corn into rice mixture before serving.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If you are going to double the recipe (I usually make a doubled recipe), use the same amount of bacon strips and oil, and keep to 1 can of olives and 1 can of corn, double all other ingredients.

Very good recipe - if you're wondering if you should use the bacon or not, I would recommend you do. The flavor wasn't overpowering, but it is important to make this dish flavorful and smoky.

Fantastic side dish to the 'Chicken Enchiladas V' on this site. Rice turned out fluffy, not soggy, and had great flavor and color. I substituted 1/2 can of diced green chiles for the bell pepp...

This rice was wonderful!! I didn't change anything I was real impressed how it turned out. And don't forget, once you put the lid on your rice- don't mess with it until the time is up.

Wow! What a delicious dish! I didn't change anything about the recipe. It passed the "kid test" but not by a majority (1 of 3 enjoyed it and got 2nds) The next time I make it, I'll use less ...

This was pretty good. Nice flavor though a little salty. Definitely don't need to ADD salt to this one...I added some diced chicken to make it a one pot meal. I liked it with shredded cheese ...

I used 4 slices of bacon, one pepper, one onion, and none of the optional ingredients. This is a great recipe. Very tasty.
