"This is one of our favorite recipes. It goes great with fried turkey, and makes a bunch. A combination of Cajun ingredients makes for a delicious dressing."

  1. In a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil. Stir in rice. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes, until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a medium baking dish.
  3. In a large, heavy skillet over medium heat, stir together ground beef, onion, celery, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, and garlic. Cook until beef is evenly browned and vegetables are tender.
  4. Stir cooked rice, crawfish tails, pecans, butter, and green onions into the ground beef mixture. Season with Creole seasoning and pepper. Continue cooking about 3 minutes, until well mixed. Transfer to the prepared baking dish.
  5. Bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned. Garnish with parsley
