Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350°F.
Cook tenderloin and bacon in ovenproof Dutch oven or large deep skillet on medium-high heat 5 min. or until tenderloin is golden brown, stirring frequently. Add onions, peppers and garlic; stir. Cook 3 min. or until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring frequently. Add next 6 ingredients; bring to boil.
Dissolve annatto paste in 1 cup hot water. Add to rice mixture; stir in remaining hot water and cilantro. Bring to boil; simmer on medium-low heat 5 min. Remove and discard bay leaves. Cover with lid.
Bake 25 to 30 min. or until rice is tender.
Variation - Top of Stove Preparation
Prepare as directed, but do not bake. Simmer, covered, on medium-low heat for 25 to 30 min. or until rice is tender.
How to Reheat Leftovers
To reheat in the microwave, place desired portion in microwaveable bowl. For moister rice, sprinkle with a small amount of water or broth, adding about 2 tsp. liquid per cup of rice. Cover; microwave on HIGH 1 to 2 min. or until heated through. (If reheating more than 1 cup, stir halfway through cooking time.)
