    CaliforniaJan's Note:

    Another winner from the Skinnytaste website. Here's a tasty and healthier twist on a Cajun classic, the addition of shrimp turns this into a fabulous main dish. I'd like to think of this as a Cajun shrimp fried rice. Dirty rice is a classic Cajun dish made "dirty" by cooking the rice with minced livers or gizzards. I created a healthier version using brown rice and lean ground beef in place of the chicken livers that normally make dirty rice "dirty". But don't worry, this healthier version does not skimp on flavor! It has plenty of spices and a bit of kick, you can adjust the heat to your taste but don't be shy with the cayenne if you can handle it!

      Mixed reviews, my cousin and I loved this (we had seconds and finished it off), husband didnt particularly like it, but wasnt specific on why. All I can say, well, WE liked it, made as per recipe, for me this would be a make again. Oh, one thing, I did add crushed tomatoes .. hope you'll forgive me, I just felt I would enjoy tomatoes in this .... really good, Jan, thank you, made for ZWT9, Family Picks, Pink Panthers

      Basically, I love the recipe. The single reason that I'm giving 4 star's instead of 5 is that, for my taste, the spicing needs to be at the very least doubled it not tripled. It's very mild and I really loved it after a drizzle of Frank's Red Hot sauce. Having said that I have never tried Dirty Rice before and this could be the quintessential recipe and I'm way off base. I will make it again with the spice elevated. It's filling, really tasty and I loved the shrimp addition. Thanks so much Jan :D. Made for ZWT 9.
