I have to say it: This recipe is down and dirty.
Dirty rice is a great one-dish meal. It’s easy to fix and can be varied depending on what you have on hand. A favorite in New Orleans, it gets its name from the bits of meat that color the rice.
This version can be made hot with cayenne pepper; season to your taste. Put out the bottle of hot sauce for the heat-lovers. Be sure to enjoy this with an ice-cold beer to beat the heat.
