Louisiana Dirty Rice is another great way to use leftovers.


1/2 pound ground pork (or pork sausage)

1/2 cup onions (chopped)

1/2 cup celery (chopped)

1/2 cup green bell pepper (chopped, or a combination of red and green)

2 cloves garlic (minced)

2 1/2 cups chicken broth (or beef broth)

2 teaspoons Kosher salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 1/2 cups long-grain rice

2 tablespoons butter

1/2 pound chicken livers (minced)


In a Dutch oven or flame-proof casserole, brown ground pork or sausage. Lower the heat, add vegetables and seasonings, and continue cooking until the vegetables are tender - about 5 to 7 minutes. Add the rice, chicken broth and then quickly bring to a boil. Stir, cover, and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 15 minutes, or until the rice is tender. Sauté minced chicken livers in 2 tablespoons of butter for 3 minutes. Toss the minced chicken livers with the rice, taste for seasoning, and adjust with more salt and pepper, as needed.
