A Quick and Tasty Recipe for Crock-Pot Quinoa Jambalaya!
Everyone knows that I adore Crock-Pot ® slow cookers. I’m always using them, especially during the busy school week. I love the fact that I am able to just toss everything into a pot, set the temperature and time, then go on about about my day. One of my favorite things to make in the Crock-Pot ® slow cooker during the week is Jambalaya. Recently I’ve been on a quinoa kick, so I like to make Quinoa Jambalaya instead of making the same old traditional Rice Jambalaya.
Ingredients for Crock-Pot Quinoa Jambalaya
For my Quinoa Jambalaya I use colorful bell peppers, yellow onions and celery. I find that they add a ton of flavor. I also like using cooked chicken breast and andouille sausage. The chicken breast can be leftover chicken, frozen grilled chicken or rotisserie chicken breast.
I add all the ingredients above into my Crock-Pot ® slow cooker. I also add in quinoa, canned diced tomatoes, garlic, cajun seasoning, red pepper flakes, chicken broth and bay leaves.
I give everything a nice stir, place the lid on my Crock-Pot ® slow cooker, then set on high for 4 hours.
The outcome of is always amazing…Check it out!
