Additional Information

If you like your food hot and spicy, you may want to increase the Cajun seasoning to 2 tablespoons.

Cajun cooks like rice! A regional specialty is Dirty Rice, which has a brownish or "dirty" appearance from the chicken livers that are cooked and ground and then added to the rice mixture. With bits of bell pepper, onion, garlic and pepper, this rice has a distinct spiciness and unique flavor. For milder palates, simply serve this southern-inspired stew with hot cooked white or brown rice.
