Mimi's Dirty Rice

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by kitty.rock

This dirty rice recipe came from my mom in 1996, and I don't have any idea where she got it. It can be adjusted for your tastes -- more or less of the "7 seasonings" to make it hotter. I usually make it and put it in stuffed peppers, but it could be a stand alone dish or side. We love it!

Not a bad quick meal that's super cheap too. I always had just bought the box of dirty rice in the store, but this was better, and I always have everything on hand to make it.
