Fat Tuesday is right around the corner, so we are in full Mardi Gras mode at our house. We made this Cajun Dirty Rice last weekend and it was SO good!!! This isn’t traditional dirty rice – there are no chicken livers in this rice! I’m not a chicken liver kind of gal!! This rice has a mixture of pork sausage and ground beef. This is very easy to make and is ready in about 30 minutes!

This is super easy to make. Start with browning some ground beef, pork sausage, onion, bell pepper, and celery. Add rice, chicken broth, cajun seasoning, and Rotel diced tomatoes. Simmer until the rice is cooked and serve. If you are sensitive to heat, make sure to use a can of mild Rotel diced tomatoes.

This makes a TON, so it is perfect for a Mardi Gras Party. You could also easily cut the recipe in half. We ate this for dinner and had leftovers for lunch. It was great both times! We like to serve this with some green beans and rolls. Here are a few of our favorite recipes from the blog that go great with this yummy rice:

  1. I made this tonight and it was delicious!! Since we are under SIP, I didn’t have any ground pork, so I cut the recipe in half and used a one pound package of ground sirloin. I had a 14.5 ounce can of diced tomatoes and a 4 ounce can of mild green chilies, brown rice, beef stock, celery, onion and Cajun seasoning. It was delicious even without the bell pepper and the pork! Thank you for a great dinner.

  2. Made this last night for a Blue Moon Mardi Gras Party – I made 1 1/2 times the recipe.
    IT WAS DELICIOUS!!! The only thing I did different was add 3 cloves of crushed garlic….
    It was a big hit.

  3. I used hot italian sausage, ground beef, about 12 oz of leftover kielbasa and threw in a can of red beans. Left everything else the same. It was amazing. Smelled SO good cooking also.

  4. Tried this tonight and it was a hit! Made my own cajun seasoning since I forgot to grab some from the store. An affordable, yummy, filling meal with just the right amount of kick!
