This is, by far, the best gumbo recipe on the planets!! This is awesome fresh out of the pot, leftovers the next day, or even freezes well. I always make a huge pot so I can freeze some for those days I am too busy to cook. My family loves this, including the kids (I do omit the extra chili peppers but def leave the spicy Ro-Tel and a big palmful of Tony's), and I always get great compliments from anyone lucky enough to stop by when I am making it. As most of us do, I tweaked this a little to meet my family's likes, as well as including some okra from our garden (grown specifically for gumbo!) I've also used anything I have on hand including andouille sausage or even smoked sausage from Hillshire farm for great flavor. I also toss the chicken with flour to be sure the "juice" is more "gravy-ish" when I make a giant pot. We use med to large fresh or flash-frozen shrimp at the very end. The small to med-small shrimp get lost in a big pot o' gumbo, plus will get rubbery too quick. We've also tried Zatarain's, Louisiana Brand, and Tony Chachere's creole seasoning and I think the Tony's wins - hands down!
Thanks so much for the best Gumbo recipe on the planet!!!!!!!!!!!
