I love this recipe. It was even better the next day. I omitted the black beans because my DD is not into beans at all, but I'm sure it would taste terrific with them. Thank you Kittencal.
This is not bad,has alot of steps to making but I eliminated 1 by not boling the chicken first.I grew up watching my Mom and Gramma make cajun food in La.With gumbo we always start with the roux first [which takes a long time if done right] and when it is ready we added the chicken and sausage.I have never had beans in gumbo before but it was ok. I like the addition of broth too.thank you Kittencal
Way too many ingredients and "Cajun-Style", it is not.
I made this last week when I had some extra time on my hands, and then froze it...Served it last night, topped with sour cream and shredded chedder....The 4 kids and DH really enjoyed it....The only reason it is not getting 5 stars is because I don't know what I did wrong, but it took me closer to 6 hours to get this to a good consistancy....The only thing I did not put in was the file powder cause I have no idea what it is, nor did I see it at the store....Will definatly try this one again when I have time to spare....Thanks
