Dirty Rice Recipe

Hate doing dishes?  Then you’ll love this cajun-inspired spicy one-pot meal!

Ingredients: Serves 4

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 pound ground pork
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 3 cups cooked rice
  • 1/2 bunch scallions, sliced thin
  • 1 handful chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper

The peppers we use are particularly potent, so sometimes we have to protect ourselves against volatile spices in our pint-sized kitchen!

Always an adventure in our kitchen …


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat.
  2. Add ground pork, salt and pepper (to taste) and chili powder.  Stir often and cook until meat becomes brown and crusty.
  3. Add 1/4 cup of the chicken broth and cook until evaporated.
  4. Add onion, celery, garlic, jalapeño and oregano.  Cook, stirring often, until veggies begin to brown.
  5. Add rice, remaining chicken broth, scallions and parsley.  Stir until liquid is absorbed and rice is heated through.
  6. Enjoy!
