Easy Crock Pot Jambalaya

READY IN: 8hrs 15mins
Recipe by lucky ladybug

This is my own modified version of the jambalaya recipe at crockpot.com. The ingredient list is long, but it's simple. I have always used instant/minute rice, and it has always cooked just fine. Some reviewers have needed more liquid, perhaps it varies by what type of rice is used.

We did not care for this very much. The rice became very mushy and the flavor was VERY bland for jambalaya. I would suggest using the entire green and red pepper, salt and pepper, at least a teaspoon of each. I also doctored with Tabasco sauce and Cajun seasoning to develop the depth of the flavors. Als suggested is using the 28 oz. can of whole tomatoes as it is listed on the crock pot website.
