This dish is a great, easy, hearty weeknight meal, although it took me an hour to make, not 30 minutes. I used store-bought rotisserie chicken, bottled minced garlic and regular brown rice cooked in my rice cooker. I couldn't find a combination Cajun/Creole no-salt spice, so I used Penzeys Cajun spice which listed salt as the second ingredient and provided excellent flavor. I don't usually cook southern food, but this dish added some fun variety to our supper menu.

Great tasting gumbo! Followed the recipe except added a bay leaf at the last simmer.

This gumbo is delicious. My boyfriend loved it and he's a tough critic. I did add a little more smoked paprika and cayenne pepper for a little more heat. I also simmered it a bit longer because the veggies were still a little crunchy. All around great comfort meal for a cold day.

Delicious! Perfect for a cold weeknight meal. I left out the celery and added red bell pepper instead of green and smoked turkey sausage instead of andouille (couldn't find it). Entire family devoured it!

Fantastic and easy recipe. I cooked the rice in my rice cooker and both were done at the same time. I think it needs just a little more heat, so I added some cayenne and Tabasco. Just what the doctor ordered for hubby's flu. Thank you!!

Very good! I made this tonight and was very pleased. I'm always looking for good cajun recipes, and this one was great and quick enough for a weeknight. As expected the leftovers were even better! Because I can't leave well enough alone, I added a few pinches of oregano and cayenne pepper as well as some chopped parsley and celery leaves. Don't forget to scrape the pan when you pour in the stock, you need those bits!! This recipe will be joining my recipe rotation for sure.

Great Gumbo! I've been talking about gumbo to my picky husband for years and this recipe brought it home to him. He had two bowls. I left out the salt - it didn't need it. Next time I will add more chicken. By the time I removed the fat & gristle there wasn't a half pound there. Thank you for another great recipe. This is a keeper.

Perfect for a chilly night. I used canned tomatoes with salt and omitted the added salt. Both my foodie husband and picky daughter gave it a thumbs up!

I thought this dish had really good flavor, but I thought the vegetables were way over cooked. Next time I'll add them in at the very end - I like my vegetables to still have some crunch to them. The veggies in this dish turned out way too mushy. I used hot Italian sausage instead of the andouille sausage.

Wonderful Gumbo! I used spicy Beef sausage and this turned out really good. Most Gumbo cooks all day long so this was really great in suck a short time. I used Zatarain's Creole seasoning and doubled it. Loved it and will make it again!

Wonderful dish! Used fresh okra and beef stock because that's what I had. Very good spicy flavor and smooth sauce. One of my new favs!
