Cajun Dirty Rice Recipe

Cajun Dirty rice gets its name from the fact when it is cooked with all the spices and meats the rice looks dirty. Dirty rice makes a great main course or a side dish for a Cajun feast. Dirty Rice is very popular in the southern regions of the United States, and mostly in Louisiana or Mississippi. Some people call it Rice dressing, but the Cajuns of Louisiana and the epicenter New Orleans call this dish Dirty Rice. The dirty color comes from the meat that is cooked with the white rice and gives it a brown color that looks like dirt. Dirty Rice comes from The state of Louisiana or Mississippi.This recipe makes a meal by itself, or a great side dish. Though the true Cajun recipe uses Chicken Gizzards, I personally don’t like them, so they are omitted from this Dirty Rice recipe. I use Ground Pork but you could substitute Ground beef and the recipe would still work great. The rice is seasoned with Cayenne Pepper which gives the Rice a little kick but it’s not too spicy. This recipe for Dirty Rice uses Holy Trinity of Cajun Cooking Green Pepper, Celery, and Onion. Give this recipe and you will be saying Laissez les bons temps rouler !
