Dirty rice

Dirty rice is a traditional Creole dish made from white rice which gets a "dirty" color from being cooked with small pieces of chicken liver or giblets, green bell pepper, celery, and onion,[1] and spiced with cayenne and black pepper.[2] Parsley and/or chopped green onions are common garnishes. Dirty rice is most common in the Creole regions of southern Louisiana; however, it can also be found in other areas of the American South.

Rice dressing

In some southern regions, it is also called rice dressing.[3] Rice dressing may be prepared using ground beef or ground pork, rather than chicken liver and giblets.[4]
