I tried adapting this one to the slow cooker. It turned out good but a little salty. Any tips for a less intense salt flavor? Less stock? Add a potato?

This has a very nice flavor, enjoyed the spinach in this recipe. I used skinless smoked sausage, mild Ro-Tel, and white instant rice. Simple to make and takes no time at all! We are just beginning to explore spicier foods and the mild Ro-Tel was a bit to hot for us yet but if you enjoy spicy hotter foods this is a must have recipe for you!
