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

"I made this and it was AWESOME!!! It was super easy to prepare, had good flavor and was just spicy enough. I didn't add the chicken or shrimp - I used smoked sausage and kielbasa. I added more chicken stock - just enough to cover it! I will be repeating this recipe for years to come!!!"

"My family LOVES this. I have to double the recipe, and it helps the diabetic's blood sugar, too. You can chop ahead and freeze the onion, celery and green peppers, and use prepared minced garlic (1 clove = 1 gently rounded teaspoon.) Freezes and reheats a treat."
