  • 1 pound Lean Ground Beef
  • 1/2 cup chicken gizzards
  • 1/2 cup Finely Dice Bell Pepper
  • 1/3 cup Diced Green Onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Celery Flakes
  • 1 teaspoon Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon Red Pepper
  • 4 cup Long Grain Rice Cooked and Drained
  • 1/4 - 1/3 cup Water
  • 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper


  • Finely chop or pulse the chicken gizzards in a food processor. In fry pan stir in ground beef, ground chicken gizzards, bell pepper and cook on medium-high heat until beef loses its pink color and bell pepper are soft. Remove excess grease. 
  • Turn temperature down to medium or medium-low. Add remaining ingredients, stir and cook together until ground beef is completely cooked and liquid is gone about 25 - 35 min. More Creole seasoning and red pepper may be added for that Cajun at Heart. I like to use Tony Chachere's.
