Jambalaya is one of the best-known Cajun recipes of all, and this recipe make use of your slow cooker to make the recipe even easier. This is full-flavored, hearty, and a treat for all the family.
Add more red pepper sauce before serving if you want, or stir in some fresh thyme and/or parsley when you add the shrimp if you like.
Andouille sausage is the type usually used in this dish because of its smoky, spicy aroma, but you can use leftover ham instead.
For attractive rice presentation, grease the inside of a ½-cup measuring cup with cooking spray. Press hot rice in there then unmold on to a warmed plate, spooning the jambalaya around the rice.
