You can make rice dirty any way you like. Use whatever leftover veggies that you have. Celery, carrots, peppers, onions, mushrooms will all work well. If you want the rice less spicy, leave out the cayenne.

This recipe can easily be multiplied and keeps well.
In a medium-size saucepan, heat 2 1/2 cups water and the salt. When the liquid comes to a boil, stir in the brown rice.
Lower the heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, for 40 to 45 minutes. Do not boil away all of the liquid and do not stir the rice.
When a very small amount of liquid remains (about 1 tablespoon), remove the pan from the burner and let it stand, covered, for 3 minutes.
While the rice is cooking, heat the oil in a medium-size skillet over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook for 1 minute, stirring occasionally.
Add the white part of the green onions and cook for about 1 minute.
Add the peppers and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add the cumin, chili powder, oregano, and cayenne.
Cook for about 1 minute, stirring until the spices are well blended.
When cooked, set the veggeis aside until the rice is done.
When the rice is cooked and has stood for 3 minutes, add the spiced veggies and the green onion tops to the rice and stir well.
