I love Dirty Rice! It’s a great back up recipe to have the wings. There are so many weeks that we will have heaps of random leftover veggies, that by the end of the week when I do my shopping, I pick up a small bit of chicken livers and it’s sorted!
Yeah, I know. Chicken. Livers. Well, that’s what makes it all so dirty!
Seriously though. It’s an easy as recipe that I start prepping when the boys are hopefully napping.
This is the original recipe here.
Most of the time you can wing it, add whatever veggies are on hand. I’ve added carrots, leeks instead of celery, mushrooms, capsicum, and a lot of hot sauce. I’ve used bacon, not used bacon – you get the idea. A handy thing that Jacob is great at doing (yes one of the MANY things) is stashing away hot chilli peppers in the freezer. And speaking of freezing – dirty rice freezes quite well!
You can find the method to the madness (aka the how-to) here. Just adjust it depending on your veg and meat.
And yes, don’t forget the hot sauce!!
