Made mine with ground turkey, red bell peppers instead of green and used the last of my celery, carrot and cabbage in the fridge. It came out delicious!  item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made this recipe today for lunch, I've been craving dirty rice. This recipe allowed me to use everything i had in my house without having to go to the store. I followed the recipe except for changing a few things. I made Jambalaya about a week ago and I still had creole seasoning that I made from scratch, so instead of using the thyme and cayenne seperate I used the blend I made. I also did not add any of the meats it called for, instead I added ground turkey, about 1 lb. I also did not add the chicken livers and green onions. I followed the timeline exactly, except with the few tweaks I said and it came out fabulous, I couldn't stop eating it!! I like my foood hottttttt, spicy wise, so I spiced it up. Everyone who ate it loved it, I mean it isn't traditional, but hey to everyone likes different things, but I'd say this recipe is perfect! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe, but needs more sausage. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was everything I expected it to be. I used chicken livers because my market was out of gizzards, and it was still very good. I will make this again, and again! Give it a try. It is worth a try. I don't think you'll be sorry. item not reviewed by moderator and published
