Columbian Squash Stuffed With Dirty Rice

Yield: 6 Servings
1 Columbian squash, about
- 5 pounds
1 lb Extra lean ground chuck
1/4 lb Chicken giblets, chopped fine
1/4 lb Bulk sausage
2 T McIlhenny Tabasco pepper
- sauce
1/4 t Salt
2 Small cayenne peppers,
- chop fine
Olive oil
2 c Beef stock or water
The Columbian squash used in this recipe may be replaced with a small
pumpkin, as the edible portions are similar in color, taste and
Cut and remove a section of the squash top as if you were about to
carve a "Jack-O-Lantern". Remove the seeds and stringy parts of the
vegetable. Mix the salt and McIlhenney Co. Tabasco sauce and rub onto
the inside of the squash (or pumpkin). Replace the squash top, and
microwave on high for about 5 minutes. While squash is in the
microwave, brown the ground meats, along with the chicken giblets in a
small amount of olive oil in a heavy skillet. When the meats are
browned, drain off excess fat, then add beef stock or water bring to a
boil, add the package of dirty rice mix, return to boil, lower heat and
simmer 5 minutes. Place the mixture into the squash or pumpkin, replace
the top and microwave on high for about 6 minutes per pound of squash.
