I have always loved a good jambalaya recipe. The blends of spice and heat and delicious meat. Yum!

Tips to make Jambalaya recipe slow cooker even easier:

Learn how to freeze rice and make dinner even more quick and simple. We love serving this jambalaya recipe over rice.

Sometimes, we mix the rice in. It’s amazing either way.

I try to always keep rice in the freezer so I can just reheat and serve. It is much cheaper than those prepackaged servings of rice and so fast and quick.

Also, this recipe calls for diced onion and green peppers.  Another time saving tip is to use a small food chopper or food processor to quickly and easily chop onions and peppers.

If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them. They are such a time saver and you can get the veggies really fine.

I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need. It’s so nice to be able to just take the diced onion out of the freezer for recipes.

This is how I meal prep. It’s so quick and easy and helps get dinner on the table fast.

Learn and  how to freeze onions and also how to freeze peppers to save so much time in the kitchen!

If you are in the market for something new, I really love my Ninja cooker. The nice thing about this is you can brown the meat in the same slow cooker.

It is so handy to just have the one pan to clean. It has become of my favorite kitchen appliances.

My favorite feature is that you can lock the lid down. This is awesome for when you need to take the crockpot somewhere.

Another favorite is this programmable crock pot  for when I am am not at home all day. I love coming home to a nice meal ready and waiting!
