Killer spanish rice

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
½ pounds Bacon; cut into 3/4\" pieces
½ pounds Hamburger
1 medium Onion; chopped
2 cups Water
1 cup Uncooked regular rice
⅔ cup Chopped green bell pepper; optional
16 ounces Stewed tomatoes
1 teaspoon Chili powder
½ teaspoon Dried oregano leaves
1¼ teaspoon Salt
⅛ teaspoon Pepper

Fry bacon until crisp; drain on paper towels. Cook and stir hamburger and onion in 10-inch skillet until hamburger is light brown; drain. Stir in bacon and remaining ingredients. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until rice is tender, about 30 minutes. (Add small amount of water during cooking if necessary.) NOTES : Since I omit the green pepper, I buy the stewed tomatoes that have green pepper in them, and maybe even bits of celery.. It's been awhile since I've made this, but it's always a big hit.
