1 lb chopped chicken/turkey gizzards and hearts
1 lb coarse ground beef (chili ground)
1 lb chopped calf liver or chicken livers
2 large onions - chopped
2 bunches green onion tops - chopped
2 large bell peppers - chopped
1 medium bunch of celery - chopped
4 cloves garlic - finely chopped
8 - 12 cups of REAL cooked rice - (texmati is good, NO Uncle Ben's!)

Thoroughly stir in fluffy, cooked rice until the desired "dryness" is
