Number of Servings: 8


    1 c low sodium chicken broth
    1 c tomato sauce
    1 t olive oil
    3 slices turkey bacon
    1 1/4 c diced onion
    1 c rice (uncooked)
    1 tomato, diced
    1 red pepper, diced
    1/2 t chili powder
    1/4 t salt
    1/2 t pepper


Makes 8 servings as a side, about 3/4 c each

Place the tomato sauce and broth into a pot and heat to a boil.

Heat a large skillet (e.g., bouillabase pan), and add the olive oil once it's hot. Add the bacon and cook.

Remove the bacon and reserve the remaining oil. Add the onion and cook about 4-5 minutes, until translucent. While onion is cooking, chop bacon into small pieces.

Add the rice, and cook 3-5 minutes while stirring occasionally.

Add the broth/sauce mixture and remaining ingredients. Stir briefly, then cover. Simmer 30-40 minutes, then stir once.

Serve hot. This will reheat ok. Adding a small bit more broth when reheating keeps it from drying out.
