Everyone I served this to had three bowls each! I followed the base recipe then made a few additions:
-Added 2 carrots (thinly sliced) to the celery, onion mixture that was sauteed in the beginning
-Baked a chicken and pulled the meat and chopped about 2 cups worth and added it to the gumbo
-Created a rich chicken stock from the bones, fat, and drippings while the Gumbo was cooking, added about 4 cups homemade stock to the original 2 cups chicken broth
-Added about 2 Tbs of lime juice half way through cooking
-Added about 1-2 tsp of red pepper flakes
-Continued to add water as needed
It created amazing, complex flavors that meshed together so nicely!
