Dirty Rice



Cajun favorite, white rice dish mixed with chicken livers or gizzards, (the “dirty” part of the rice).
This dish is a one of those “must try” dishes! Dirty Rice goes with pork chops, smoke sausage, or makes a great side dish for just about anything.


Dirty Rice



2 tablespoons bacon fat
1 cup chopped shallots
1 finely chopped rib celery
1 tsp. Fresh chopped parsley
1 pound finely chopped giblets
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 cups rice
4 cups water
salt, to taste




Sauté the shallots, celery, and chicken giblets in the bacon fat until golden brown. Add the water, tomato paste, rice, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Turn the heat down cover, and let simmer for 30 min, stirring the mixture occasionally. Uncover and let stand for 5 to 10 min. Adjust the seasoning to fit your taste! Fluff with fork and serve.
