While true jambalaya is really more of a thicker rice stew than a soup, it's one of those dishes that more stock can be added to easily make it into a soup recipe. Serve garnished with green onion.

Chicken, sausage, and shrimp on rice.

Meaty Slow Cooker Jambalaya

I like to avoid frozen shrimp when I can so I am using dry cured ham instead to this delicious jambalaya! Toss the chicken, sausage, ham, vegetables, and seasonings in the slow cooker and forget about it until dinner time.
