Add the sauce, chicken thighs, sausage, water, and salt to the slow cooker. *Make sure add some of the water to your jar of Mesa de Vida after you pour in the sauce to make sure you get every bit of goodness out! *Add frozen okra at this point if you're using.
Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
Add the shrimp and stir into the pot. If using frozen add 30 minutes prior to serving, if using fresh shrimp add 15 minutes prior to serving.
Shred chicken and stir into the soup, serve and enjoy!
