Lupe's Fried Rice AKA Spanish Rice

Lupe's Fried Rice (This is my 81 yo mil's recipe)

3-4 cups white rice
1-2 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp black pepper
1-2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1 can tomato sauce
1 lb ground turkey, chicken, pork, etc (whatever meat you want)

Brown ground turkey. Drain and set aside. Brown rice. Stir constantly until light brown on low heat. Add enough water to cover. Let it boil over medium heat. If water absorbs add more. Add spices, onion, and green pepper. Once water is gone and rice is soft add tomato sauce. Add salt, to taste (I don't normally add this). Slowly cook. Put lid on pan, it will cook faster.

We LOVE this!  Making this tomorrow for dinner, since we had an er visit with Jordan.  He stepped on a pin and it went into his big toe.  Had to sedate him, shoot him with Lidocaine 5 times, and cut it out.  Poor baby!  :(
