So another commenter was right--it IS all about the roux. I used 1/2 cup of butter (instead of oil) and 1/2 cup of flour on almost medium heat for about 10 minutes total to get the darker brown peanut butter color. Also used Shiner Bock bear, 2.5 quarts of chicken broth, 2 chicken breasts, 3 chicken sausages, and 2 cups each of celery, onion, and carrot, as well as added in some zucchini. To make it a more balanced meal, it needed the extra vegetables. Be careful with adding the cajun/creole seasoning. Start with less than 1/4 cup and add to your taste. It would have been way too salty and spicy if I had added the full 1/2 cup. The smell is phenomenal, and it tastes just as good!
