ABOUT

Cajun Dirty Rice is a flavorful and only slightly spicy blend of rice with traditional seasonings and vegetables including the “Holy Trinity” of Cajun-Creole cuisine — celery, bell peppers and onions. We designed Cajun Dirty Rice to be a quick, easy and flavorful complete dish.

  • Cook and enjoy as a flavorful side or main dish
  • Add sliced sausage and red beans for a traditional New Orleans dish
  • Use as a stuffing for peppers, tomatoes, roast poultry or meats
  • Use as a base rice for jambalaya or hoppin’ john, or as a bed for shrimp creole or crawfish étouffée
