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 recipe is one I got from Simple and Delicious in 2007.
1 can (28-oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 lb andouille sausage links, cubed
1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
1 cup diced onion
1 small sweet red pepper, diced
1 small green pepper, diced
1 cup chicken broth
1 celery rib with leaves, chopped
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
1-1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon Louisiana-style hot sauce
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 pound cooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
Hot cooked rice for serving
In a 5-qt. slow cooker, combine the first 16 ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or until chicken is no longer pink. Stir in shrimp. Cover and cook 15 minutes longer or until heated through. Discard bay leaves. Serve with rice.
