Fried Rice with chilli and tuna

A twist on the classic fried rice dish. It's easy. It's got zing. It's delicious. Trust me. This is adapted from a recipe in a Delicious mag (2004)

4 cups of cooked long grain rice
8 bacon rashers (rind removed or rindless) and chopped
1 onion finely diced
1-2 garlic cloves - crushed
1 cup of frozen peas 0r 1/2 cup and 1/2 cup of frozen corn kernels.
210g tuna in chilli oil
1/2 cup spring onions finely sliced
1/4 cup light soy sauce
1 long red chilli finely diced
1-2 eggs - cooked omelette style

The how to:
Fry the bacon and onion in a little olive oil. Remove from pan and set aside.
Add a little more oil (just a smidge) and add the rice and garlic. Cook for one minute then add the peas, tuna, spring onions, soy sauce and cooked bacon and onion. Heat through. Add the omelette. Serve with extra soy and spring onion if you like.

ps..not the best of pics I know. I don't have a fancy slr and the lighting in my kitchen sucks big time.
