Guest Recipe from Ellie (A.K.A. Mom)
Very Easy Spanish Rice
1/2 pound Bacon diced into small pieces
1 med. onion chopped ( I like them cut into bigger chunks, you might want them chopped small.)
1 can Tomato Soup
1/2 can Water
1 1/2 teaspoon Chili Powder
Salt and pepper to taste
4 cups Rice cooked
Brown bacon and onion together ( being careful not to burn) Pour off fat.
Add soup, water, chili powder, and salt and pepper.
Simmer on med heat for 10 minutes.
Our family likes this dish a bit hotter so I add more Chili Powder ( my boys will add Tabasco sauce also.)
This recipe started from my mother-in-law Helen Belan Alden back, well who knows when 40's or 50's?
(Grandma is the tiny one in the middle.)
*Helen was my paternal grandmother. She saved every recipe that she could find even if she never made it. (I guess I get my recipe collecting gene honestly.) I was told that recipes used to be printed on matchbook covers and that Grandma saved them all. That is one collection I would like to come across but hers has been lost in time somewhere.
