Bright colors, spices, fluffy rice, and fiery chorizo are staple flavors of Mexico. Red, green, and yellow bell peppers give this Mexican rice it’s vibrancy as well as its sweet and savory depth. Bacon and Chorizo gives this dish some much needed salt, perfectly balanced by the subtle rice and acidic tomato puree. Olive oil keeps the ingredients from solidifying and forming clumps, insuring you have a perfect rice dish.
