Easy Spanish Rice

This is an easy dish that can be modified to taste. It was a go to meal and made often. Great for leftovers for a quick lunch. This easy meal has been passed on to me from my mom and now to my girls. It is still one of our meals that we add to our menu very often.

Not sure how Spanish this meal is but that is what we called. Turned into one of our favorites, and there is bacon!

Could eat for days
