Slow Cooker Sausage and Shrimp Jambalaya

Slow Cooker Sausage and Shrimp Jambalaya At Miz Helen's Country Cottage
Sausage and Shrimp Jambalaya is a regional favorite here in east Texas. We are only about 2 hours from Louisiana so we have some cajun overtones in some of our favorites and this recipe is surely one of them. A very good friend of ours recently brought us some beautiful gulf shrimp from her visit to the gulf. We decided that we would use them in our favorite Sausage and Shrimp Jambalaya recipe and I am so happy to share it with you today.
What Is Jambalaya

Jambalaya is a popular Louisiana dish that came from Spanish, French and West Afican influence. A Jambalaya consist of meat, fish, vegetables and rice. It usually always has some kind of sausage and sometimes includes chicken, pork and some kind of fish, crawfish or shrimp. As people began to migrate from Louisiana into East Texas they brought their delicious cajun recipes with them. Our Jambalaya has just the right mix of cajun season and is slowly cooked in the Slow Cooker allowing the seasons of the sausage and shrimp to blend with the mix of hot and spicy.
