Red Rice

My mother in law got very creative with dinner ideas when money was tight. This is one of those recipes that we still enjoy! I like to serve the dish with sweet corn bread.

The rice did have a good flavor and vegetables or pieces of meat would be nice in this also. When I made this I was not sure what to do with the two cups of water in the inredients but not listed in the directions. I cooked the rice according to the directions of the package and I added 4 cups of water. Adding the two cups of water with the tomato soup, bacon, and cheese didnt seem right as the rice was already cooked and getting a little mushy. I used turkey bacon and enjoyed the smokey flavor in the rice. Thank you for sharing the recipe Newly Mrs. Johnson. I will try this again at a later date. Made and reviewed for Pick A Chef Spring 2009.
