The Columbian squash used in this recipe may be replaced with a small pumpkin, as the edible portions are similar in color, taste and texture.
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.
Your Columbian Squash Stuffed With Dirty Rice is ready. Bon appetit!
