Stormy's notes for this recipe:
Seeing Bonnies Popeye's chicken got me thinking of their dirty rice. So I looked up copycat dirty rice for popeye's and there were two. each saying they were the real. This one has the stuff I remember in it and the other is easy so I will put both here and you can try both. I believe the first is the real one.

Popeyes-style Dirty Rice
1 pound lean ground beef
1/2 cup finely diced bell pepper
1/3 cup diced green onions
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon celery flakes
1 teaspoon Creole seasoning
1/4 teaspoon red pepper
4 cups long grain rice, cooked and drained
1/4 cup water (more as needed)
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

In fry pan stir ground beef and bell pepper. Cook over medium high heat until beef loses its pink color and bell pepper is soft. Remove excess grease. Turn temperature down to medium or medium low.

Add remaining ingredients; stir and cook together until ground beef is completely cooked and liquid is gone - about 25 to 35 minutes. More Creole seasoning and red pepper may be added for taste.
