Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

This is a Taste of Home recipe that was submitted by a lady from my neighboring city of Coppell, Texas a few years ago.

1 can (14.5-oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can (14.5-oz) beef or chicken broth
1 can (6-oz) tomato paste
3 celery ribs, chopped
2 medium green bell peppers, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
5 garlic cloves, minced
3 tsps dried parsley flakes
2 tsps dried basil
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 1/4 tsps salt
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
1 lb smoked sausage, halved and cut into 1/4-inch slices
1/2 lb uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
Hot cooked rice for serving

In a 5-qt. slow cooker, combine the tomatoes, broth and tomato paste. Stir in the celery, green peppers, onion, garlic and seasonings. Stir in chicken and sausage.
