This dirty rice can be as hot or as mild as you like, and I love the smoky spice of the andouille sausage.

It’s just enough heat to wake up my tired sinuses, and easy enough to make when I’m not feeling so hot.


If you’re sensitive to spice or serving this to kids, you may wish to omit the cayenne pepper or use a milder sausage.

Recipe Steps


In a large pot, bring 3 cups of chicken broth to a boil. Add the rice, cover, reduce heat to low and let simmer until the rice has absorbed all the liquid, about 15-20 minutes (depending on your brand of rice).


Meanwhile, combine cayenne pepper, salt, pepper, paprika, cumin, oregano and thyme in a small bowl. Set aside.


Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions, green pepper and celery. Saute until the vegetables have softened, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic, stir, and cook about 1 minute more.


Add in spices and the remaining cup of chicken broth. Stir in the sausage and the beans and simmer until slightly reduced, about 5 minutes.


Pour the vegetable and sausage mixture into the rice and stir to combine. Stir in the green onions.

I also believe that Pho is the cure to almost anything. It is especially useful in hangover situations.

Have fun with your hot date in Seattle. I also love the Kimpton hotel group. My wife and I had a hot date down at the Hotel Vintage plaza down in Portland. It was such a “hot date” that I proposed to her the next day in Cannon Beach.
