Lad's Dirty Rice



This is a very hot and tasty dish.My family loves it,but if you don't like spicy dishes,use 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper instead.I sometimes use 1/2 lb ground pork and 1/4 lb chicken gizzards,ground up instead of mushrooms.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
WOW!!! This is fantastic! A huge explosion of flavor!! This dish if one of the best I have ever had - absolutely wonderful and a keeper for sure. I cannot wait to make it again for the next potluck get together.

I used quick-cooking rice and cooked sweet sausage to great results. Also, just 1 tsp of cayenne was plenty spicy for my wimpy palette.

Next time I will double the recipe - It goes fast!
