Slow Cooker Jambalya

I have never made jambalaya before, and will make this one many more times.  The flavors were amazing, and that was even without the ground red pepper!  When I reheated it for lunch the next day, I couldn’t get it in my mouth fast enough!

Ingredients:

1 lb lean turkey sausage, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 bell peppers, coarsely chopped
2 yellow onions, coarsely chopped
1 (14 1/2 oz) can diced tomatoes
1 cup sliced celery
2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 pkg McCormick Slow Cookers Savory Pot Roast Seasoning Mix
1 cup water
1/4 tsp ground red pepper (optional)
1/2 lb large peeled and deveined shrimp
1 1/2 cups instant rice

Preparation:

Place sausage, bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, and celery in slow cooker.  Top with chicken.  Mix seasoning mix, water, and red pepper until well blended.  Pour over chicken.  Cover

Cook 8 hours on low or 4 hours on high.

Gently stir in shrimp and rice.  Cover.  Cook 15 to 20 minutes longer on high or until shrimp turn pink and rice is tender.

Serves 12
