I have been told many times that this is not authentic Jambalaya by my friends from New Orleans. You know what I say? I could care less, this is delicious and easy. A** Blood is a homemade hot chili powder (http://www.cucumbertown.com/a-blood-recipe-dish)
- In a slow cooker, combine the diced tomatoes, chicken broth, and tomato paste. Stir in peppers, onion, celery, garlic, parsley, basil, oregano, salt (it will depend on how salty the chicken broth is), cayenne pepper, A** Blood, and hot pepper sauce. Stir in the chicken and sausage.
- Cover. Cook on low for 6 hours.
- Stir in shrimp and continue to cook for 15 – 30 minutes or until shrimp is no longer pink.
- Serve over rice.
This is very versatile and can be changed in many ways. Have fun with it.
