Easiest Dirty Rice Recipe I Could Find

As I mentioned yesterday, I enjoy inhaling eating dirty rice. A former Zatarains addict, I have been on the lookout for a comparably easy and better-for-me (no chemicals added) alternative. I found it in Alecia's Easy Dirty Rice recipe at Detours in Life.

Ground chuck, onions, green pepper, garlic, and parsley.

Add your homemade cajun spice. How "ragin" did you make it?

Finish with the cooked rice...

...top with sour cream, your cheese of choice, and dig in!

  1. So, what does "dirty rice" mean? Is that just rice with hamburger? I hear it all the time and really don't know. Off to google now!

    1. Did you find it, Elizabeth? Traditionally, it's chicken liver. For me, it's always been (and will be) good ol' hamburger!
