    I absolutely loved this for dinner. I did add Turkey polska kielbasa, and halved the recipe(we are only a fam of three). Just the right amount of spice..was impressed my anti-okra fiance' ate his okra and didn't complain :-) A real winner. - 10/18/10

  • Put all items in crockpot except rice and shrimp. Try 3 hrs. on high and them add shrimp and rice.
    Cook 1 hr. more.
