* Jambalaya* (Diabetic Crock Pot Recipe)

Hello everyone! Today I decided to post Jambalaya for diabetics. This recipe requires 9 1/2 hours to cook, so you will need to start this in your crock pot really early. You could omit anything you don't like in it and it should still taste good. I don't care for shrimp, so I omit that. Most people may think I'm nuts, but that's OK. Well enjoy!

Hi, your recipe sounds delicious. What size slow cooker do you cook it in? Mine is a large machine, 6 quarts, I think and it cooks everything much quicker than the recipes state.
