I love spanish rice. I was curious how bacon would taste in this dish which is why I decided to try this. I used one green bell pepper, half of an onion, 4 strips of bacon and 1 roma tomato with all other ingredients. I used only a dash of chili powder. I did not need to add much more salt to the rice since there was salt from the bacon. The cooking time was approximate. Very tasty, nothing overpowering, the flavors were balanced. I could tell there were bacon pieces in the rice and I could see the bacon bits but my family said they would have never known it was there if I did not tell them. I was asked to put "a lot" more bacon next time. I think you can certainly play with this dish by adding peas, or omitting bell peppers, etc. This dish can be served with any mexican dish. Tonight I served this with, "Salsa Chicken," also from this site, and they complemented each other very well.
