MY REVIEW

"This is the easiest and tastiest gumbo I've made. I don't add ham nor a roasted chicken. I boil or brown chicken thighs. Awesome recipe."

"This is not gumbo. How dare you destroy the good name and flavour and hisotry of Gumbo with this blatant, tasteless, worthless lie. YOU DO NOT PUT BEANS IN GUMBO. Your photo looks nothing like gumbo. You a horrid chef."

"We loved this recipe! I omitted the okra as my family doesn't care for it at all. We'll definitely be making it again."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 6, 2011

"My family loved this recipe. I did change it a bit because we're not fond of kidney beans; so I simply left those out and added more of our favorites. I also substituted the ham for chicken. All in all this is a great dish!"
