Forgotten Jambalaya Recipe

Publisher Photo
During chilly months, I fix this jambalaya at least once a month. It’s so easy…just chop the vegetables, dump everything in the slow cooker and forget it! Even my sons, who are picky about spicy things, like this dish.—Cindi Coss, Coppell, Texas

MY REVIEW

Yummy! I omitted the shrimp to save $. Turkey smoked sausage is a healthy substitute for regular smoked sausage.

I make this at least once a month -- we love it! I leave out the shrimp and just add more chicken and sausage since my husband doesn't like seafood. Couldn't be easier -- just chop everything up and mix it up in the crockpot!
