Directions

  1. In a heavy saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and the chopped onions; saute for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Mix in the bell pepper, chili powder, ground annatto, chili flakes, cumin, and cinnamon. Saute for 2 minutes.
  2. Pour the rice into the saucepan and stir to coat. Add the water and 1 teaspoon salt, and bring the rice to a boil over high heat. Cover the pan and turn the heat to low. Simmer the rice for 25 minutes.
  3. When the rice is cooked, mix in tomatoes, corn, black beans, and pine nuts. Stir in salt, pepper and lime juice. When the mixture is heated through, spoon it onto plates and top with the sliced red onion and cilantro. Serve a wedge or two of lime with each plate to squeeze over the rice.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I feel it is a shame to call this recipe "Dirty Rice", which is already a well established recipe in south Louisiana and nothing at all like the one that you published. In fact I think that I would be ashamed to call this recipe "dirty rice". I am 68 and can remember this dish from back in the 40s, and I am sure it was around long before I was on the scene. Tsk, tsk.

for an annatto substitute try 1/4 tsp. paprika plus generous pinch of tumeric (equals 1 tsp annatto)

This is by no means dirty rice. I followed this as written and feel that there are tons of other recipes that rate much higher. It would have been easier to just boil the rice and add all the other stuff to it.. Will not make again.
