shrimp creole: "slow cooker sundays"

slow cooker sundays:
shrimp creole
5 hrs cook time

1 lb cooked shrimp
2 links andouille sausage
1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
2 ribs celery
1 small onion
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 can tomato paste
1 tsp minced garlic
salt & pepper
tony chachere's creole seasoning
zesty table blend
rice (i used brown)

dice bell peppers, onion and celery.  add to slow cooker along with stewed tomatoes, tomato paste and minced garlic.  slice sausage and add as well.  add a generous amount of all seasoning, cajuns like their food flavor full. :)

cook on low for 4 hours.  stir occasionally.
add shrimp after 4 hrs and cook for another hour.

pour over bed of rice (mostly done with white rice but i used brown) serve when ready.

this was my first true "cajun" dish and with my husbands approval, it was great.  he was super excited to have andouille sausage and in his opinion, that really made it a home run!
i found ours in the fresh meat section at the grocery store, most should have it. (same place i got the shrimp)


this makes a pretty generous amount.  freeze what you don't eat and reheat on a lazy day :)
