Jambalaya Rice

Looking for a great hearty meal that is easy to make and full of flavor?  I personally love anything with Creole seasoning and shrimp!  This easy dish is a crock pot recipe that is a little out of the norm.  If you can imagine the smell as it is cooking, that is only a tiny preview of the punch of flavor this delicious recipe affords.  Using turkey smoked sausage and brown rice even makes this dish a little on the healthy side.

As the weather cools in the coming weeks and you turn to the slow cooker for a delicious way to get a meal on the table, try this recipe.  Olivia made it and as you can see, she got great results.



  • 1/2 pound ground sausage, cooked in a pan until browned
  • 1/2 pound turkey smoked sausage, cut into 1/4 inch rounds
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 large each - green and red peppers, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 1 tsp. celery seeds
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons Creole seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon seafood seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 cups uncooked instant brown rice


  • Place the first 10 ingredients in a 5-qt. slow cooker. Cook, covered,
  • on low 3-4 hours or until chicken is tender.
  • Stir in shrimp and rice. Cook, covered, 15-20 minutes longer or until
  • shrimp turn pink and rice is tender. Yield: 8 servings.
