Recipe: One-Pot Weeknight Dirty Rice — Quick and Easy Weeknight Dinners

Dirty rice is a traditional Cajun or Creole dish named for the color it takes on, thanks to key ingredients like chicken giblets and liver. It’s earthy, heavily spiced, and hearty. I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume you don’t normally have liver and giblets around (I sure don’t), but that doesn’t mean you can’t still throw a version of this dish together on a weeknight.

To make dirty rice more weeknight-friendly, I sub in spicy chicken andouille sausage for the giblets and liver and cook the rice right in the pot with everything else, making this a one-dish meal that tastes like you’ve been cooking for hours.
