This is a gumbo recipe that's been borrowed and recombined from three different people's recipes, and this is how it ended up! Laissez les bons temps rouler! Be sure to have some file powder and hot pepper sauce to season to your liking. Serve over hot rice with potato salad and crackers, if desired.

This is not creole gumbo. The secret to ceole gumgo is the roux. It has to be very dark, reddish brown. If it is not brown enough it changes the whole taste and it is not creole gumbo!

Used andouille sausage and kicked it up with 1 tsp cayanne. Added some okra when I added spices. Great over white rice.

being from southeast Louisiana I can say that I have eaten most every type of gumbo..except this one. It takes the taste of shrimp and adds chicken to it. It was a nice change and my family loved it.
