okay this tasted wonderful but i had to use a different brand of parboiled rice and increase the time to 40 min to an hour (not sure) gotta love high altitude, and i cooked the hamburger seperate and combined it with the last few minutes of the bacon not sure if that changed the original taste but after the rice tendered up it tasted great. so thank you thomas pirkle for a really easy spanish rice with a great flavor
