The only thing that makes this gumbo meal even more perfect is to serve it with sweet potato pie!

I've made this so many times now, that I've lost track of how many. It is so loved by my family. I've tried to make gumbos with a roux several times & it never turned out or tasted quite right. So I really appreciate this recipe. I often use leftover chicken, but other than that, I don't change a thing. It's perfect as is.

I made this for our Christmas social at work and everyone loved it. It is now a favorite of my family's also. I don't usually like sausage or soups with shrimp in it but I liked this. Just the right amount of heat.

I love this gumbo and have served it many times! An Australian friend took the recipe home with him for his family to try. It's one of my stand-bys now.
