I've only eaten gumbo once in New Orleans, and this was so much better than I remember. I used corn oil and cooked the roux until closer to the color of milk chocolate rather than chocolate milk as recommended in other Gumbo recipes on this site. Used mild Italian sausage and 1 lb boneless chicken breast. Used 2 Tbsp Cajun Seasoning I brought back from New Orleans which might make it a little spicy for kids. Chopped 1/3 red, 1/3 yellow, and 1/3 green peppers. Will remember next time to have all ingredients cooked, chopped and ready before starting my roux. I added the chicken the same time I added the other ingredients and only simmered uncovered for 1 hour, stirring often. Gumbo was even better the next day. Thanks so much for this recipe!
