Shrimp Creole

I haven't made this yet, but I plan on getting the stuff this weekend to give it a try.
I saw Paula Deen making it the other day & I knew I wanted to make it.

2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup diced green bell peppers
1/2 cup diced onions
1/2 cup diced celery
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 (14-ounces) can tomatoes
1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
1 tablespoon hot sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon white sugar
Salt and pepper
1 1/2 pounds peeled and deveined shrimp
Green onions, for garnish

Preheat crock pot on high.

In fry pan, heat olive oil. Add peppers, onions and celery. Cook until softened. Add chili powder and saute until caramelized. Remove from heat and pour into crock pot. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, hot sauce, Worcestershire, white sugar, salt and pepper.

Cook for 3 hours. Add shrimp and cook for about 3 minutes. Serve over rice. Top with chopped green onions.

***When I made it I also added a teaspoon full of minced garlic. And I didn't use as much of the hot sauce. Once it was done, I tasted it. And added more. You can always add spice or heat, but you can't take it away. I also cooked my shrimp longer than 3 minutes. I like really cooked shrimp.

This was also a huge hit! Daniel & I both loved it! It was super easy to make. The most work was just chopping the onions, peppers & celery.

It would a be a great meal to prep the night before & let it cook while at church on a Sunday morning.
