Prep tips: For variety, add oysters or chicken sausage, or stir in chopped greens when you add the shrimp. If your slow cooker is an older model, use a slightly higher temp to be sure the rice cooks completely. Serving tip: Pair with garlic bread to sop up the hearty sauce.

Directions
  1. Combine all ingredients except shrimp and parsley in a 4-quart slow cooker; stir to mix well. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours. Add shrimp and parsley, and cook for an additional 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
