Recipe by Wildflour

This is my own concoction and I'm sure not "politically correct", lol, but this is the way we like it. LOADED with chicken, vegetables, tomatoes and rice!

This is a very tasty gumbo. Had to play around with the spices to get it to our liking, but very good. I didn't have a pan big enough to make the whole recipe so I used my 7-8 qt. crockpot and it was full to the brim. I made this to take to work, but then forgot to pack it up when I left. Makes a huge amount. Thanks for posting.
