Low Carb Crock Pot Jambalaya

"I found this recipe on a low carb recipe site and I served it last night (my husband has been begging me to make Jambalaya and I finally found a low-carb version). It was excellent, easy to make, and had a nice kick to it (I added extra hot sauce, which might explain why it had a nice kick to it :-). If you are not eating low-carb, then I am sure you can add some rice to it (or serve it on top of rice). Enjoy!"

    Really really good! I made a couple of substitutions, I swapped carrot for celery and chicken for shrimp. I also used diced tomatoes with chilies. Excellent flavor and easy to put together!

    Oh yum!!! this was fantastic. I made it to the recipe and added a wee bit more Tabasco to it as we like hot and it didn't disappoint. I am low carbing so I didn't have rice with it but DH did he never even twigged that it was low carb. A very nice recipe that I will be making as a regular. Thank you for posting.

    Very Delicious! and great for South Beach Diet, My husband loved it and he is very picky, Thanks for sharing! I used cooked shrimp, but I think next time I will try uncooked so that all the spices can be absorbed.

    We thought this tasted great - 5 stars from both of us. We substituted boneless, skinless chicken thighs for the shrimp and put in about 3/4 to 1 teaspoon of the hot sauce. The kids gave ratings of 1 and 4 stars, but that may be due to being a little hotter than intended. Next time we'll use the listed amount of hot sauce and just add more in our individual bowls when serving.


2007 I thought that I would edit my home page...its been over two years, so I its time to update! I have lived in beautiful New Mexico for the last few years (Albuquerque), after 20 years of living on the West Coast (San Francisco and Seattle). I love many things about New Mexico - the perfect weather, in particular; the sunsets; the open land; and the great Southwest food - but also sometimes miss the energy of bigger cities. I am a mental health therapist, who loves my work! I love to cook (a passion that I discovered after getting married). Rather than cooking a few favorites on a regular basis, I prefer to collect recipes (primarily from the Internet), and try new things often (in fact, my husband jokes that he will try a new dish that he loves and then never see it again :-)). I also love to read, write, travel, work on personal growth, and study/learn. I am a total water baby, who lives in the desert, so I love traveling to tropical locations, where I especially love to snorkle and boggie board! I am very happily married to my best friend, soulmate, partner, and greatest cheerleader and supporter, and we have three grown children, and four grandchildren (so far :-))I am a total foodie (I "live to eat" instead of "eat to live.") :-) I love everything about food...cooking; the delicious scents of a yummy dish, as it cooks; the beautiful presentation of wonderful food; dining out; dining in; the taste of great food; sitting around the table, with friends and family, eating, talking and laughing; nurturing those I love by cooking for them...all of the senusal pleasures that food brings! My favorite Internet site for yummy recipes is this one - and I almost always choose recipes with five-star ratings, so please keep on reviewing! :-)
