Quick Spanish Rice

I found cooking rice, beans, couscous or vegatables in different medium than water made for more flavorful cooking. This version of Spanish rice has served hundreds without complaint.

Heat lard or oil. Combine cooked peas, bacon bits and onion (and cilantro) and sautee in heated oil. Bring V-8 to a boil and add the sauteed mixture. Simmer for 2 minutes. Remove V-8 from heat and add rice. Cover and let stand. Fluff occationally per instruction on rice. Boiling water may be added to bring to desirable texture.
