I love dirty rice but younger kids are usually not crazy about chicken livers or gizzards so I have come up with this recipe that mimics traditional dirty rice without the livers/gizzards but with a ton of flavor. If you like a more spicy version just add your favorite hot sauce, cayenne pepper or spicy peppers to the rice. Enjoy!
