Slow Cooker Shrimp & Sausage Jambalaya

This is very easy and wonderful to come home to after a long day at work. Even after cooking for 8 hours the vegetables are crisp and tasty. I use 1 tablespoon bayou blast (emeril) instead of red pepper sauce and turkey kielbasa for the sausage. I cook my rice in a rice-cooker. My teenagers say it is the best meal that I make. What an easy & tasty dinner this is!

I will continue using this recipe as a great base for crockpot jambalaya. However, there were a couple of key modifications I had to make for this dish to be a success as jambalaya. When prepared as written (with the undrained tomatoes), this came out very liquid for me. I undercooked two cups of rice on the stovetop and added them to the crock for about 30 minutes and everything thickened up beautifully. In the future I think I would drain the tomatoes to see if that improves the consistency for the recipe as it's written. Additionally, I had to add the recommended tablespoon of Cajun seasoning (I used one purchased in New Orleans) and I still needed to add additional hot sauce to give the dish the right punch.

Maybe I did something wrong, but this was very bland. All I could taste was tomato. It was very watery too.
