This is an easy favorite crockpot recipe of a busy cook from Algoma, Wisconsin that serves a lot of people. Perfect for tailgating especially if you need some heat! Good with your favorite crusty bread but absolutely perfect with beer bread! Wrap your crock pot up in some old towels and you are set to enjoy. Go Pack go!:) I recently made this for a camping trip to the North Shore and before heading north I precut the pepper, onion, celery, and dumped the cut veggies into a ziplock along with all the spices and then froze the zip lock mixture. I also subbed in a can of cooked wild rice and it tasted great! Make and then enjoy a long hike. Works well when reduced by half, also

I halved this recipe and it was plenty for two of us for two dinners. The spice was spot on for my taste- I don't like the spice to take over the other flavours of a recipe. I liked the range of vegetables in this and we'll definitely come back to this recipe! Made for Please Review my Recipe.

I am a big fan of Jambalaya and I love this b/c I can pretty much dump and go (reserving shrimp and rice for later) I scaled this way back (for two) and threw it in the crock pot on high while I went to the gym! Add shrimp and rice and let cook while I showered and voila -- yummy dinner! I may consider making the enitre recipe and then divide into smaller portions and freezing and dumping before work! Thanks for posting! Made for Everyday is a Holiday October 2009!

My first attempt at making jambalaya/first taste of it. It was great! I started late in the day, however, so we cooked in a pot for a few minutes and THEN used the crockpot, trying to speed up the process. I also used a bit less than two lbs of sausage, because we didn't have that much in the house. Thanks WiGal! We enjoyed this recipe immensely, and my family rated it in beteen four stars and four point five. Made on behalf of the Genies for ZWT5.
