Did you happen to notice that the picture of Grandma Carols Chili in my last post is 100% improvement over previous photos I’ve posted? I made a great investment this past week – a lightbox. I absolutely love it. It was less than $40 and folds up into a flat carrying case. The pictures are so much better. I am looking forward to improving even more in the coming months. Now onto the the business of the day – Slow Cooker Jambalaya! This recipe is amazing! If you’re like I was and have never tried Jambalaya you don’t know what you’re missing!
This next recipe I am sharing with you has been one of our favorites since we’ve made our commitment to try at least one new recipe a week from Pinterest. Or should I say at least inspired by a recipe from Pinterest. If you like spicy food you are going to LOVE this!
The inspiration for this recipe came from Cats and Casseroles.
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast – cut into bite size pieces
1 pound of spicy ground sausage
28 oz. diced tomatoes (do not drain)
2 large bell peppers (you can use whatever you have on hand – we just happened to have green)
2 cups chopped celery
1 cup water
2 chicken bouillon cubes
2 tsp. dried oregano
2 tsp. dried parsley
2 tsp. Cajun seasoning
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1 cup instant rice
Set rice aside. You will cook this, according to the package directions, once the jambalaya is done.
Brown sausage and drain. Add all ingredients and spices (except for rice) into the slow cooker. Cook on low for 6 hours.
Serve jambalaya over cooked rice. Enjoy!
