This is a super simple one-pot meal. I use minute rice that I make in the microwave while I am cooking the bacon and vegetables. Once that is done it’s as simple as putting it all together, stirring and warming all the ingredients you’ve added till it’s hot.

Since you use cooked shrimp and smoked sausage the meat only needs warmed and takes just 10-15 minutes on the stove.

Want to use hamburger or sausage you should brown it after cooking the bacon. You can brown it in the bacon grease with the peppers and the onions. Just be sure it is thoroughly cooked before adding the rice and tomatoes.
