Serves: 8
  • 1 pound chicken gizzards, rinsed and diced fine (I used a food processor to chop them finely)
  • 1 pound ground sausage
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 15-ounce can red beans, drained and rinsed thoroughly
  • 8-ounce box dirty rice mix (Zatarain’s, Tony Chachere’s and Luzianne dirty rice mixes can be found at most grocery stores)
  • 2 quarts beef broth
  1. Brown the gizzards and sausage in a large skillet over medium heat and drain fat, leaving about 1 teaspoon in the skillet
  2. Remove the meat and place into a Dutch oven or soup pot
  3. Add the onion and celery to the skillet and cook in the reserved grease for 5 to 7 minutes, until they are soft but not brown
  4. Drop the cooked veggies into the soup pot
  5. Dump in the beans and add the dirty rice mix to the soup pot
  6. Stir everything together
  7. Pour in the beef broth and bring the soup to a boil
  8. Reduce heat to simmer, cover and let cook for about 25 minutes – until rice is fluffy
  9. Taste for seasoning, adding salt and freshly cracked black pepper as desired
  10. A good splash of hot sauce is recommended
