"This was the best Chicken Creole that I've ever had! My 9-year-old even went back for seconds, which is unheard of unless it's junk food!" – SarahStumphf
"My children love this gumbo. My husband and I love the flavor, with the bonus of a quiet dinner—the kids are too busy to talk." – kc
"This will put a smile on everyone's face that's eatin' it. Throw on some Zydeco music and serve on a bed of rice with cornbread and a cold beer." – Lupe Boudreaux
Recipe of the Day
Gumbo has a history of being made with roux, but my Mom's recipe didn't have it. Now it is my most requested item at work, tailgating parties, and at home. The vegetables really shine in this gumbo!
