    Excellent recipe. I had mine with a side of broccoli and you have a full meal! I got a little heavy handed with the Tony’s, but it’s all good. This will be a repeat recipe for sure.

    This recipe was so quick and easy to make and tasted delicious. It only took me about 30 minutes to make this dish so its the perfect weeknight meal when you don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. I sauteed some zucchini on the side so I wouldn’t go overboard on the rice!

    I love the dirty rice!
    I’ve made the dirty rice several times. Once I added egg whites, onions and sweet peppers
    It was oh so beyond delicious. It was hard eating the recommended portion but I did.

    This Dirty Rice is so delicious. The week that we got the recipe I ate it the entire week until it was gone. I made it the next two weeks. I’m controlling myself now and just making once a month. I have to try other recipes. But I love it!

    Since it was in the evening when I made this I only tasted a little. I don’t know why I waited so long to make this. It was so delicious. This will for sure being in rotation for my meals during lunch time. If you have not tried this dirty rice you’re truly missing out on something amazing.
