I love me a good bowl of slow cooker jambalaya. This dish will warm you right up with the Cajun spices, tender chicken, savory sausage and succulent shrimp in a flavorful stew of tomatoes, onions, celery, and garlic.  This dish is bright and colorful and smells as amazing as it looks.  Trust me this is one of my favorite slow cooker meals.  Try this and you will be glad you did!
