First of all, I made a couple of changes to this recipe. I used a full tsp of salt instead of 1/2 and added about a tbsp of chili powder to give it a little more kick and depth. Also, I didn't have any orzo, so I used instant brown rice. The pros to this recipe are that it is very easy and a great example of slow cooker "make it and forget it". The cons (in my opinion) are that even with the added salt and spices, it was still kind of bland. This is more of a "mock jambalaya" simply because a true jambalaya has a lot more kick and richness created by the roux and cajun spices. However, there is a lot of room for experimentation with this recipe, and I will continue to use it as a base and play around with it.
