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 am such a huge fan of slow cooker recipes, and this is one of those that really does make life a little easier, as well as pleases just about every little mouth in the house.
I hope you give this quick and easy Slow Cooker Sausage Gumbo Recipe a try, and make sure you let me know what you think when you do!
