A Louisiana favorite, our version of this spicy dish uses whole-grain Wehani rice. Long-grain brown rice also works. Traditionally made with chicken liver, which gives it a “dirty” color, we use healthy lean chicken sausage instead.
1 1/2 cups  Wehani or long-grain brown rice
3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 tablespoon peanut oil  or canola oil
10 ounces cooked chicken andouille  or other spicy chicken sausage, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 1/2 cups chopped yellow onion
1 1/4 cups chopped celery
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
1/4-1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
Dirty Rice Recipe at
Bring rice and broth to a boil in a large saucepan. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer at the lowest bubble until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender, about 50 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, for 10 minutes.

While the rice is standing, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add sausage and cook, stirring, until it begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Add onion, celery, green and red bell pepper and garlic and cook, stirring, until the onion is soft, about 5 minutes more. Stir in thyme, cayenne to taste and salt. Stir the sausage mixture into the rice and serve.

Dirty Rice
Why would anyone cook rice for 50 mins, when it takes 20 steamed. Another thing Dirty Rice in New Orleans is made using chicken liver, and gissards, guess you can add the meats of our choice, but this isn't a true Dirty Rice recipe
