omg !! this is awsome . no doubt a winner . instead of gizzards and liver , i used 1 pound fresh pork sausage .any favorite sausage will be fine . deserves 10 stars ..thumbs up on this one .thanks alot !! popeyes dirty rice has nothing on this one .



Finally a recipe for the "Real Dirty Rice" ! You must be from Cajun country to know what I mean, Sha! Thanks To you! Debra



This was great! I substituted 3/4 lb of ground beef for the chicken livers (not too keen on them, sorry!) - I also added 1/2 cup chopped celery and 1/4 lb chopped bell pepper. I will definitely make this again. Be careful with the cayenne pepper, if you can't handle spicy food! Thanks for the great recipe!
