Turkey Jambalaya – Slow Cooker

Turkey, andouille sausage, rice, tomatoes and spices give this dish tons of flavor! If you like a fiery hot jambalaya use a spicy sausage and more red pepper or some hot sauce. I kept mine more on the mild side in an attempt to appeal to a variety of taste buds. Of course you could use leftover chicken too.
