I have tried several gumbo recipes and this was the best one by far. My 4 kids and my husband loved it. It's not easy to find something that they all like, so I really recommend this recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, cook the onion, celery, and peppers.
  2. Remove veggies from saucepan and add oil.
  3. Heat the oil and then add the flour. Brown the flour, making a roux. You will need to cook this until it becomes a coppery color (like a penny), stirring constantly so it doesn't burn.
  4. In large stockpot, cook the chicken and sausage. Once that is cooked, add the veggies, including the okra and tomatoes. Add all remaining ingredients.
  5. Next add the roux (cooked oil/flour mixture).
  6. Let soup cook on low for about 3 hours. You really need to cook this soup a long time because it really enhances the flavors.
