I like spicy food, but have never been to Louisiana to have authentic gumbo, and am not sure how it should taste. But I liked this once I tried it out...I did alter it, probably making it not gumbo at all. I started heating 3 slices of chopped bacon to get some liquid going...as the bacon released it's grease and started to brown I then added some olive oil and then the onions, celery, etc. I also added two chopped up cajon sausages. I had to add much more water than I had expected...about 3 or 4 emty tomato cans' worth of water. N ext time I will use white basmati rice over brown rice as I prefer it. And as it was a bit bland I also added a 4oz can of diced jalepenos.
