Ingredients:  
1 cup of white rice (do not use converted rice)

Directions:
Place the rice in a large bowl of water and scrub the rice between your hands (try South Carolina white rice). Keep changing the water until it is clear of starch. Pour off the water.

Use a deep, heavy pot with a lid. Cook the bacon, or if you prefer smoked turkey, with 1/4 cup of vegetable oil in the bottom of the pot. Add your onions, peppers, garlic and cook until done. Add the tomato sauce & 2 cups of water. When the sauce begins to boil, add the rice. "Never put a spoon in rice that is cooking..." When the rice begins to boil, lower the heat. Wrap a wet brown paper bag around the lid of the pot and cover, slow-cook. "Every grain must stand on it's own. Every grain must be red." Slow-cook until the rice absorbs all of the sauce.
