A winter time favorite at our house. We always have it for New Year's Day while we watch football! Serve with a tossed salad and corn bread.

OMG! I added a generous sprinkle of cajun seasoning, a squirt of hot sauce and some smoked sausage, and it was absolutely delicious. Served it with cornbread, which absolutely put it over the top.

I make this alot in the winter for my family. Only difference from the original recipe is that I use dry black eyed peas, that is soaked overnight, and add either a spicy Italian or bulk sausage, or some cubed ham, and a splash of liquid smoke. Fix up a castiron skillet of homemade cornbread and you got a meal! This will be a part of our New Year's Day dinner.

This gumbo is excellent. The flavor is perfect without all the spices other reviewers felt they needed to add. I did use two cans of rotel tomatoes (instead of one rotel, one regular diced tomatoes) and omitted the celery (not a fan). I added carrots for color. I also cooked it at very low heat for much longer than recipe indicated, which may have accounted for the rich flavor. This was a big hit....served with corn bread as suggested. Yum.
