Awesome!!!! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. This was one of the best things I have eaten in a long time. Fantastic flavor!
Let me start by saying that I'm not a great cook, I have VERY simple and picky tastes in food, my guts won't do anything spicy, I have never eaten gumbo, and honestly, I didn't even really know what it was. But looking for something new, I checked out the ingredients and knew I could like it. And let me also say that I HATE when people review recipes after they have altered it beyond recognition, so I hope I have not crossed that line.
But I did read a lot of the reviews, and decided to make the minor changes folks suggested. I used red pepper instead of green (I happened to have one on hand), I eliminated the hot sauce and added a sprinkle of cayenne pepper instead (since I'm a spicy wimp I actually think I could do without it altogether), I added one can of black beans, used fresh mushrooms instead of canned, doubled the salt, soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce, and added two sliced Aidell Cajun Style Andouille sausages. Another one of my major dislikes: casings on sausage make me want to vomit, so I peeled them off before I sliced them. :-)
I also cannot stomach giant chunks of cooked tomatoes, which remind me of blood clots. :-) I used S&W "diced" tomatoes with green chilies, thinking "diced" meant about 1/4" cubes, but they turned out to be chunks the size of my nose. Next time those suckers get chopped into little pieces!
