We always cook some bacon, really crispy and break it up in the cooked rice. It really adds flavor. You can also add a finely chopped green pepper, green chiles, onions, or what-have-you. This is one of those recipes that can take a lot of variation.

I always wash my rice too! At least 3 times you can see all the starch coming out of it. Also I like to put a couple cloves in when I put in the onion and when I have tomato I dice it up and put it in when I add the tomato sauce! Also if you don't have any broth you can just use water and Chicken bullion! And if you don't have a lid for the pan you can use any type of Cling Wrap just wrap it around the top of the pot as soon as you turn it down and pierce a small hole in the middle to let out the steam! It will come out great! I use to do this when I had to make a giant pot full and didn't have a lid that large!

Do you mean rice that comes in a plastic bag from the manufacturer. I have never washed rice in my life and I use it straight from the bag. Mary
