Taking others' advice, I cut the oil down to a half cup and used a half cup of flour. The house still smells like a fry-up, but the end result gumbo was not too greasy. I didn't have any file powder or sassafras (which is what file is made from) so I subsituted a combination of sage, thyme and oregano - a recipe I pulled from Wikipedia. I used chorizo sausage I had on hand, leftover rice from an order of Chinese, and my leftover Thanksgiving turkey. A good use of what was hanging around in the fridge after the holiday.
