I love my slow cooker, and I love my gumbo.  After modifying the Black Eyed Pea Gumbo recipe over the long holidays, I came up with a new version that is done in the slow cooker. Head to the store, because today we are making a Slow Cooker Sausage Gumbo Recipe!

Actually, I could probably call this Slow Cooker Sausage, Pea, and Rotel Gumbo…but that just didn’t have the same ring to it.

You may remember me posting a picture of this awesome concoction over the holidays on Google+….it really is as delicious as it looks.

You could always add a little rice to this recipe, but I really like the hearty taste and delicious flavors just as they are.  However, if you are a true gumbo lover, go ahead and add a 1/2 cup of brown rice to the recipe below.  If you are ok without the rice like I am, just omit it.

Slow Cooker Sausage Gumbo Recipe

  • 3 stalks of celery chopped thin
  • 1 bell pepper chopped
  • 1 small red onion chopped
  • 2 cans chicken broth
  • 4 cans black eyed peas
  • 2 cans rotel tomatoes
  • 1 package hickory smoked sausage sliced
  • 1 tsp black pepper

Step 1:  Take out your slow cooker and place the setting on low.

Step 2: Add all of your ingredients into the slow cooker, stirring well to mix things up. Heat on low for 6 hours, stirring frequently.

As with the other gumbo recipe, I would serve this in a bowl with crumbled cornbread added….and YUM!

    I absolutely LOVE my slow cooker, but you know, I don’t think I’ve ever made gumbo at home…ever! I mean in my whole life. Isn’t that weird?! Your picture looks so yummy! This is PERFECT for this time of year. I can just smell it cooking now! I’m pinning this recipe and putting the ingredients on my grocery list. YAY!! –Lisa

      You are going to LOVE this, it is delicious, and the 2 cans of Rotel give it the perfect kick! My 3 year old eats this like it’s candy…not too spicy, and she loves the flavors!

    I have such a smoked/summer sausage obsession! It’s bad. And when I was pregnant, it was worse. And when my mom was pregnant with me, it was all about pepperoni.
    Anyway, I’ll always make note of a slow cooker sausage recipe.

    This looks fantastic! I’m a gumbo fanatic and make an “almost homemade” one that everyone is a huge fan of, but would love to try a slow-cooker one since I’m too lazy to cook lately, haha! I’ve never tried one without okra or with black-eyed peas. This could be FUN!!!

      OMG, it is sooo good! You friends would love this, but you should totally substitute the sausage for chicken, it would totally work!
