Shrimp Jambalaya

I recently got a crock pot and have been looking for some recipes to try. I found quite a few but with this huge meat recall I didn’t want to take any chances. I finally came across this one that sounds delicious! I remember making jambalaya while in college and bringing it to a pot luck. Everyone loved it and became a dish I was always asked to bring.
