For this week's Sunday Supper we are celebrating Mardi Gras with  Zatarain's and all recipes are variations of Jambalaya! How super fun is that?

There's something about the fact that Mardi Gras day is historically food focused that leaves me intrigued. I can only imagine all the delicious variations of Jambalaya, Gumbo and all the other local delicacies to sample while taking in the parade.
 love making this Crock Pot Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya to celebrate Mardi Gras in our house, since it's a great excuse to enjoy different cuisine with the kids, and culture. Crock Pot Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya is a family favorite. It's so easy to make and requires only a little prep work.

We love making this on nights where the kids have sports practice or activities since the crock pot keeps dinner warm until ready to enjoy for those who might be joining us late at the dinner table! It's also a great dish for potlucks and parties since it's full of flavor but easy to make! 

In a large crock pot add: 1 medium sized Diced Onion, 3 Diced Carrots, 4 stalks Chopped Celery, 4 cloves Minced Garlic, 1 whole Diced Bell Pepper, 1 pound Smoked Andouille Sausage Sliced, and 1 pound Diced Chicken Breast.
Add 3 1/2 cups Chicken Stock, 14 1/2 ounces Diced Tomatoes, 2 tablespoons Tomato Paste, 1 2/3 cup Rice, 3 teaspoons Zatarain's Creole Seasoning and 2 teaspoons Smoked Paprika.
Stir until well combined.
(I actually prefer brown rice when making this recipe but was out on this particular day. I find the brown rice holds its texture better after the long cooking time.)
If you prefer a little more heat to your Jambalaya feel free to shake in more Zatarain's Creole Seasoning. I found the 3 teaspoons plenty of flavor with just enough heat the kids could enjoy the Crock Pot Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya too. The seasoning also contains salt and other spices so you will want to take that into account as you season the dish! 

Stir until well combined, cover, and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours. The last hour of cooking you'll want to keep an eye on the Jambalaya the first time making it to adjust cooking time accordingly dependent on the slow cooker.
The other option if you have a lot of different preferences in your house over how spicy you enjoy your food is serving Zatarain's Creole Seasoning on the side, then everyone can adjust how spicy they enjoy their meal! 
Add fresh sliced scallions to garnish and enjoy!
