Jambalaya

Perfect quick, crock pot meal for a cool day.  All of the prep could easily be done the night before, throw it all in the slow cooker in the morning and you're all set for dinner.   You can make this as spicy or as mild as you'd like.  Use any type of Cajun seasoning you'd like - I prefer to make my own.

Jambalaya
Serves 4

Ingredients:
1.5 lbs chicken breasts
6-8 oz andouille sausage
1 bell pepper
1 onion
4 celery stalks
28 oz diced tomatoes
1 1/2 tbsp Cajun seasoning
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 jalapeño, diced (optional)
Hot sauce (optional)
1/2 lb shrimp (optional)
Rice, for serving

Directions:
1.  Chop the chicken, sausage, bell pepper, celery and onion into large, bite size pieces and place into a crock pot.  Add in everything else except the shrimp and rice.  Stir, cover, and cook on low for 6 hours. 

2.  Twenty minutes before serving, stir in the shrimp.  Cook uncovered until shrimp is warmed through.  Serve over rice.  Enjoy!

Bon Appetit!
