1/3 Photos of Filé Gumbo
Gumbo, the ultimate Cajun food. It's really just a thick stew served with rice, and isn't nearly as difficult or exotic as some TV chefs will make you think it is. Here's the simple, home cooking version my family actually cooks in Louisiana. This recipe uses chicken and sausage, but you can use anything that swims, flies, walks or crawls. Shrimp, alligator, turkey, ham, anything you like. This one is also a filé (sassafras powder) gumbo, which means no okra. If you prefer okra, you can add some, I just don't really like it that much if it's not fried. If you can't find filé in your area, it can be mail ordered, or you can leave it out, but the results will not be as good without it.
