This is a great dish for those who do not like chicken livers! Easy to prepare and very flavorful. I followed everything exactly except I used about 1/2 teaspoon of chopped jalapenos because I do not care for "spicy hot" dishes. I have added this recipe to my "keeper" notebook. Thanks so much for sharing it. :-)

I used all beef. But, next time I will try with 1/2 sausage. We loved it :)

Finally! I found my recipe for Dirty Rice.........no more boxed mixes. This is the one!! I made a few changes. I used two cups of rice, 1 pound ground chuck, 1/2 pound hot sausage, bay leaf, rosemary, and itailian seasoning, celery seed and 2 1/2 cups of water. I still only used 1 can of cream of chicken and french onion soup. It was delicious and my family loved it. I do like chicken livers so I will add some the next time I make it.

My husband's mother was from the heart of cajun country so he remembers eating this as a child when they would go visit relatives in Lousisiana as a child. I am not very fond of the taste of liver, so this was a huge hit at our house by using the ground beef instead. The blend of spices was perfect! I cooked mine in a well sprayed, air bake cake pan and only cooked it for 1 3/4 hours. It came out very moist and so good. My grandkids were eating it out of the pan cold the next day and my husband just loved it! Thanks for sharing...this one is a keeper!

I've never had dirty rice before; this is good but not outstanding. The rice was ve-e-ry soft and gummy; maybe I could have decreased the cooking time. Nice flavor, and I like that it's a one-dish meal!

I used all sausage as my son doesn't like ground beef. Everyone ate it up. I used the whole jalapeno and put the green onions in with the dish. I used creole seasoning since that is what I had. Thank you for sharing! It was wonderful!

I love this recipe! It is like princess buttercup read my mind. I can't stand liver, gizzard or meat by produts such as tripe, tongue, or intestines. I was getting sick of looking for a dirty rice recipe and they all had that gross stuff in them. My stomach was starting to churn just looking at the recipes - Yuck! But this recipe is great, great, great. I added some thing to it though. Celery salt, italian seasoning, rosemary, season salt,and mild green tobasco sauce.

Highly flavorable. My DH really loved this. Prepared as instructed, only problem I had was the rice was over cooked and the casserole stuck to the bottom of the pan. Next time I'll try greasing it and decrease the temp time a bit. Thanks princess buttercup!
