Recipe from Carol Benoit of Morgan City, La.
Total Time: approximately 50 minutes or less
1 lb. lean bacon or sausage cut in 1" pieces
2 pounds ground chuck
2 cups diced seasoning (onions, bell pepper, celery)
2 cans black eyed peas (drain juice in measuring cup)
2 boxes Tony Chachere's dirty rice mix
1. Add bacon/sausage to a 5-6 qt. pot (Dutch oven). Cook until half done.
2. Add ground meat, mixing well. Brown well, adding chopped seasonings, browning more. Drain off grease if too much.
3. Then add drained peas, reserving the liquid in a 4 cup measuring cup. Add water to make a total of 4 cups, including the liquid from the peas.
4. Add the water, along with the rice mix to the pot; stir well and bring to a fast bubbling boil, then turn down to low and cook covered for 25-30 minutes, or until rice is done to your liking.
Yield: Serves 8 or more
Comments: It's like a meal in itself. For a change, add a can of Rotel drained. ENJOY!
