Slow Cooker Jambalaya Soup

In case you are eating in this Valentine’s Day and are looking for some inspiration, I have for you some slow cooker jambalaya soup. It is packed with protein in the form of chicken, hot sausage links, and shrimp. With just the right amount of spice, it gives off some heat but not too much. This is the perfect meal to throw together before leaving for work, and gives off a superbly spicy and warm aroma throughout the house.
