This recipe is adapted from Taste of Home's Simple and Delicious. My family LOVES this version of gumbo. It looks complicated because it seems there's a lot of ingredients, but it comes together very quickly. I think one of the things that sets this recipe apart is the way the rice is prepared. Some of the spices for the dish are in the rice, the rest in the gumbo. You really can't have one without the other. You may find that you'll need to add more salt to wake up the flavors.
