I took your basic recipe and added in a few things-cumin, 1/2 cup each of peas and corn, and fresh coriander to finish. YUM!!
I made this for ZWT 5's trip to Spain and we loved it. I had a Serrano chili pepper and added that, chopped and seeded to the onion and bacon mixture and I also used brown rice instead of white. The added heat from the pepper really stood up to the extra texture from the brown rice and the resulting dish was exceptional. Baking the rice also was a nice, simple final step and made prep fast.
