1. Dirty Rice
From Spicy Southern Kitchen :: Click HERE for the RECIPE Dirty Rice is a spicy and flavorful Cajun rice dish made from white rice. It gets its “dirty” color from finely chopped chicken livers and ground beef or pork. The chicken livers give it such a deep flavor. Even if you think you don’t like chicken livers, you should try adding them. Since they are finely chopped, the overall dish doesn’t have much of a chicken liver flavor.
