Red Rice Baton Rouge Style

Looking through my old recipe cards I rediscovered an old standby that I used to make often when I lived in Baton Rouge. This is great served with grilled shrimp, boiled crawfish or any fish. It can be a meal by itself when you add some cooked crumbled sausage to it, which then makes is "Dirty Rice."
