This rice recipe results in a dish so delicious, you’ll wonder why you didn’t make it sooner. It packs a punch, but it’s not overwhelming, making it a perfect complement to many mains. This dirty rice uses only red bell peppers and omits the green bell peppers found in other dirty rice recipe, which makes for a smoother flavor. Our Test Kitchen explains, “The finely chopped vegetables are pleasing to the palate but do not interfere with the mouthfeel of the rice. […] [There’s] light heat and plenty of flavor, and it makes a great side dish to any Cajun-inspired meal.” It’s an easy recipe that’s just begging to be added to your next weeknight meal. If you’re pressed for time, our Test Kitchen says, “You CAN use a convenience product like Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice, which is a super easy product to use and provides nice, separate rice grains. That makes it even easier to prepare.” That’s a rice shortcut you could take, but if you follow the recipe as written, you won’t be disappointed.
