I like this one for Rice & Peas:
(Pigeon Peas are the authentic "peas", from what I have been told at TOTT in Grand Case)...
Dirty Rice is more of a New Orleans (Cajun) recipe... and is a lot different...

[color:"blue"]Rice and Peas[/color]
[color:"blue"]Ingredients[/color]
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups basmati rice
2 1/2 cups water
1 (10-ounce) can chicken broth
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1 (15-ounce) can pigeon peas, rinsed and drained*
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
1 teaspoon salt
Garnish: fresh parsley sprigs
[color:"blue"]Preparation[/color]
Sauté onion and garlic in hot oil in Dutch oven over medium-high heat 1 to 2 minutes or until translucent. Add rice and next 3 ingredients; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 25 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender. Stir in peas, parsley, lemon rind, and salt. Garnish, if desired.

* 1 (15-ounce) can field peas may be substituted.

Here's a recipe for "dirty rice" that a friend of mine from Louisiana uses all the time. It's yummy, even though it looks like it's more generic than the ones posted above.
1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
1 can onion soup
1 can beef broth
1 can cream of mushroom soup
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 cup raw rice
minced green onions
sprigs of parsley
1/2 cup water

-Mix all ingredients. Cover, bake at 375 for 1 - 1 1/2 hours. Season to taste.
