Chicken, Shrimp, And Sausage Gumbo - TastyPlanner.com
Gumbo has been a traditional Cajun food for generations. In its basic form, gumbo is a soup that is made from a strong stock, various meats (shrimp, chicken, crawfish, sausage, and many others), a thickener (either okra, only roux, or file’ powder), and various vegetables such as celery, bell peppers, and onions. Regardless of how you prepare a gumbo, it should always be served with rice. While gumbo can be eaten at any time (we do), many people enjoy it during cold weather.
