Cajun rice or "dirty rice" is a well loved New Orleans dish and a Louisiana classic, with as many different recipes as there are cooks. Traditional Dirty Rice uses chopped chicken livers which gives it a distinctive flavor and a dark color dubbing it "dirty" rice. It typically includes the trinity with da' Pope, which is diced bell pepper, celery, onion, and garlic. This is my favorite version.
