A friend shared a recipe with me last year for Jambalaya, and since I prefer to keep things as simple as possible...I choose to make this in the crock pot!
It's quickly become a family favorite and it's so easy to make! This makes quite a bit, but if we have more than just our family to prepare for, I double the recipe.
16 ounce package of cooked, frozen shrimp (tail off) and/or 2 cups cooked, shredded chicken 1 pound link sausage, sliced 1 bell pepper, diced 1 onion, diced 1 cup celery, chopped 4 cups beef broth 2.5 cups instant brown rice 1 can rotel tomatoes 1 can sliced mushrooms 2 bay leaves 1 stick of butter
1/4 teaspoon red pepper
Place all ingredients in crock pot and mix well. Cook on low for 6 hours or high for 3 hours.
Be sure to stir a few times throughout the cooking process!
