ISO the Kicker!
I have a dish that I have been working on. It started as a healthy version of Dirty Rice. I didn't look up what was in dirty rice before I started the first time, and while at the store buying the supplies I added cabbage to the my list.
I don't know what to call it, but here is the ingredients. Brown rice, ground beef, ground hot sausage, onions, and peppers (habenaro, serrano, jalepeno and long green chilies (look almost like bananna peppers).
I cook the rice separately, and brown the meat and drain. When the rice is almost done, I mixed in all the other ingredients and let the heat of the rice cook the veggies. This was too hot, even for me and my wife said it needed salt.
Next time, I made it the same way with the exception of salting the water I cooked the rice in, and added fresh chopped tomatoes. Better tasting with the salt but was still too hot.
Yesterday, I made more and this time I used less peppers (removed 1 of each kind) and doubled the cabagge and the tomatoes. Perfect heat, but now that it doesn't burn your mouth with the peppers, it is lacking something.
Can anyone suggest a spice or anything to try to complete this dish?
