"Spanish Rice" with Bacon and Cheese

I went to my sister Erika's house for dinner tonight. She made this rice dish that she makes sometimes that's really nice, but I don't really know what to call it. Here's an approximate recipe.

Erika's Cheesy Tomato and Bacon Rice
For 2-3 servings

1 onion
2 slices middle bacon
1 400g(ish) can tomatoes
2 - 2 1/2 rice cups of rice
Chilli powder
1 can water (rinse out the tomato can and use that)
Probably more water than that

Chop onion and bacon. Cook in butter/oil. Add tomatoes (chop them first if you're using whole peeled), rice, chilli powder and water and cook, stirring to prevent sticking, until rice is cooked. Add more water while cooking if you need to. When rice is cooked add cheese and stir/cook until cheese is melted.

We ate it with carrot and celery sticks. Not mixed, but the were present as part of the meal. You know what I mean.
