If, like me, you like to serve Dirty Rice with your New Year’s Day dinner, this is most definitely the version to help ring in 2018! Fluffy white rice studded with the usual culprits—celery, onions, garlic, crumbled sausage, and green onions—but also includes a couple of unique add-ins. Instead of diced, traditional green bell peppers you use diced poblano peppers and instead of a side of greens served alongside the dish, hearty collard greens are cooked right into the rice. (I had turnip greens on hand so I used those instead, but feel free to use spinach, kale, Swiss chard or even mustard greens if you like.) This dish comes together effortlessly on the stove in about 25 minutes…just enough time to grab the hot sauce and set the table!
