Shrimp Creole

This is a Paula Deen Recipe. It’s very easy and the crockpot does most of the work. My family really liked it. As for myself I thought it needed a little more wow, but that is the Cajun blood coming out in me. You could probably add a little fire with a little cayenne pepper or Tabasco.

  • 1/2 cup diced green bell peppers
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
