Jollibee’s Adobo Rice
Joillibee’s Adobo Rice might prove to be the perfect fast food substitute to satisfy your cravings for Cajun Rice. Although Adobo Rice may be based on the traditional Filipino meal of the same name, it’s composed of similar garlic and onion flavors that made the Popeyes side such a hit.
Zatarain’s Cajun Rice Mix
If you want a substitute that is more Cajun, then Zatarain's Cajun chicken flavored rice is just about the closest thing to real Louisiana cookin' you can get from the grocery store. The box mix is filled with Cajun spices, onion, bell pepper, a touch of chicken flavor, and garlic.
Dirty Rice
