Bacon and Rice Creole



  • 1 pound bacon
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 3 small onions, chopped
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups canned tomatoes
  • 1 cup raw rice (not quick-cooking)


  1. Simmer vegetables and spices in a saucepan.
  2. At the same time, fry the bacon.
  3. When bacon is done, remove from pan and crumble into small pieces.
  4. Drain off all but 3 tablespoons of fat, to which add the raw rice. Let rice brown lightly.
  5. Add the vegetables and bacon; let simmer over very low heat for 30 minutes. Check after 20 minutes to see if it is drying out. If so, add more tomatoes, or some water, or a combination of both.
