Fry out bacon (4 strips). Remove bacon from pan, add 1 finely chopped onion and fry until slightly browned.
Soak up excess grease in fry pan with paper towel. Pour one15-ounce can tomatoes over onions - do not use minced, diced or wedges. Bring to a boil. Pour 1 cup long grain white rice into tomatoes and onions and bring to a boil.
Cover and reduce heat to low. Stir occasionally to keep from sticking while steaming. If rice stays hard, add a little water or tomato juice for additional moisture and continue steaming. Steam for approximately 30 minutes or until rice is done. When ready to serve, add salt and pepper to taste and crumble bacon on top.
