Directions

  1. Cook the bacon in a large skillet until crisp, about 5 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
  2. Discard the bacon fat in the skillet.
  3. Add the onion, red bell pepper, and garlic to the skillet and saute over medium heat until softened, about 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in the rice, tomato, chicken broth, salt, cayenne and black pepper. Bring to a boil.
  5. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer until the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is tender, about 20 minutes.
  6. Stir in the bacon, parsley, and basil.
